World War I Centenary: Remembrance Day 2018

Events taking place across the country on Sunday 11th November will mark Armistice Day when in 1918 World War One finally ended.

#DMUHeritage has a travelling pop-up display commemorating the contribution of DMU’s predecessor, the Leicester Municipal Technical and Art School, to World War One.

The exhibition describes the contribution of the School to the war effort, and tells the heart-breaking stories of some of the students named in our Roll of Honour.

The display will be available at the following locations:

Monday 12th to Sunday 18th: Kimberlin Library Foyer

Monday 19th to Tuesday 20th: Hugh Aston Atrium

Tuesday 20th to Wednesday 21st: Vijay Patel, outside the Gallery

Thursday 22nd to Friday 23rd: Campus Centre foyer

Sunday 25th:  Trinity Chapel during Meet the Archivists event (open to the public, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) 

For an online version of the display, see Impact of the Great War .
