3 Exhibition Wednesday 16 July - Sunday 16 November A War to End All Wars A thought-provoking commemorative exhibition telling the story of the events that led Britain to war in 1914, spotlighting the principal players and places that featured in the stalemate of the Western Front and its trench warfare. The attacks on the home front in the early war years by sea and air are described. Along with many fascinating artefacts from the conflict there is the opportunity to see some of the persuasive posters produced throughout the war as part of the government’s propaganda campaign, ranging from early recruitment posters, through those urging wartime economy to others simply encouraging continued support for government policy, usually by whipping up indignation against the latest alleged outrages committed (invariably) by the German Army. Dedication of the Carshalton war memorial Watercolour by E. Winifred Madder. Events Sunday 7 September 11am-4pm Wedding and Events Fair Our annual event is bigger and better than last year.
