World War One Red Cross Hospital Exhibition
From 1914-1919, Corsham’s Town Hall became a Red Cross hospital for the sick and injured sent back from the Front. This October you can step back in time and find out what life at the hospital was like for the patients, staff and volunteers – and the people of Corsham – during The Great War. PLUS you’ll be able to see yarn-bombing artist Emma Leith’s remembrance poppies tribute to the 115 Corsham men who never came home, and the local women who ran the hospital, including a poppy trail through the town. And there’ll be music, drama, film, history workshops and even the chance to get ‘Knitting for the Troops’. The WW1 Red Cross Hospital Exhbition will run at the Town Hall from 22-30 October, 9.30am-4.30pm every day. Admission is free, but there will be a chance to donate to the Red Cross, Royal British Legion or SSAFA should you wish.
