Experience Barnsley’s final exhibition to mark the centenary of the First World War will commemorate 1918 and the final few months of the conflict.


The exhibition will tell the story of Barnsley and the Home Front with a particular focus on stories of those soldiers who returned from the war and the impact on their lives following the conflict. The exhibition will also explore the role of women in the war within the context of the suffrage movement and the momentous passing of the Representation of the People Act 1918. Remembrance and commemoration are significant themes woven throughout this exhibition which will also inform visitors of the ways in which Barnsley and the borough have commemorated 1918, what the war memorials tell us and the longer term impact of the war.

Further details of talks and activities in the events programme which will run alongside the exhibition will be available nearer the time.
