Discover the Great War - Music Exhibition
November 17, 2014 - at The Norris Museum
This exhibition is part of the ‘Great War – Between the Lines’ project, which aims to raise awareness of the Great War and its Centenary commemorations. Partners from across Northern France, Belgium and the UK have chosen 6 themes through which to explore their shared experience of the Great War. The themes chosen cover music, family, British troops on the Western Front, total war, hidden stories and military logistics.
‘Music and The Great War’ looks at the impact of the war on composers, and the role of music on the Front, in prisoner of war camps and as a form of propaganda.
By placing these exhibitions in public places we will bring the story of the Great War to you.
The Norris Museum is open 10 am – 4 pm Monday – Saturday and 1 pm – 4 pm on Sunday.
