We Will Remember 1914-1918

29 August 2014 - 18 September 2014

Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) will be hosting the embroidered hanging which is the creation of artist and embroidery tutor Adrienne Howells. The six foot high black and white artwork depicts scenes from the trenches, with red silk poppies appliquéd onto banners either side, honouring those who died in the First World War.

Poppies are available for visitors to write the name of a family member who served; each poppy will be sewn around the main image. All donations will go to support the work of the British Legion.

The First World War changed the way we live. RAMM’s four-year programme of exhibitions, displays, events and activities focuses on the war’s impact on the people and landscape of the Southwest.

Developed with regional and national partners, it examines the wider social and cultural changes that have a lasting effect on our everyday lives. To find out more about our programme visit www.rammuseum.org.uk
