Newark_Museum_3We have a small exhibition of embroidered silk postcards made mainly by French and Belgian women during 1914-1918. Not only are the works exquisitely executed, but they are superb examples of front-line patriotic art. Alongside the postcards, is a display of other items and paintings relating to WW1.

The exhibition runs until 18 December 2014

‘The Poppy Trail’

Newark_Museum_4Around the museum displays, ‘poppies’ are placed against objects and paintings with stories to tell about WW1. The Poppy Trail booklet expands on the stories which cover many of the issues of The Great War, such as the role of women at home and at the Front, conscientious objectors, special constables, families coping with death and injured loved-ones.Newark_Museum_5

The Poppy Trail is suitable for families as there is a parallel trail for children.

The Town Hall Museum is open from 1030am to 3.30pm Monday to Saturday (closed Sundays and Bank Holidays) and it is FREE.

There is also much else to see in the Georgian Grade I listed building. For further details, please look on our website:
