Activities at the Cheshire Military Museum this February include a digital exhibition, half term fun and the first of the spring series of talks.
To mark 100 years since the First World War Gallipoli campaign in 1915, a new digital exhibition will be on display from mid-February to April giving an insight into what happened a century ago. On Wednesday, February 18, a drop in craft session will allow children to get creative and make their very own tricorn hat, popular in the 18th century. They varied in size and style and were worn by the military as part of their uniform. The activity, from 10.30am-noon is a drop in session, suitable for all ages.
The first spring talk, The Battle of Meeanee, is on Thursday, February 19, at 2pm looking at the 1843 Battle of Meeanee and the role played by Cheshire soldiers.
