Thu 30 Jan - Sun 28 Jun World War One Exhibition
Sat 6 Jun Tea Dances


This new exhibition comemorates the end of the First World War and the Returning Soldier. The Museum has a library of recordings for use on reproducing pianos, and a collection of instruments that were at the height of popularity in the1910s and 1920s. The music that emerged from the war is sometimes upbeat and incongruous with the tragedy of the period, while other music seeks to evoke the trauma of the front-line. The exhibition features a local history perspective, a display of music from our collection, and recordings of music from the era played on our instruments.
