Join curators and researchers to uncover the exhibition Devon Voices 1914-1918: Home Front Stories, and hear about the people whose lives reveal Devon’s social landscape 100 years ago. Our researchers will explore how they discovered these characters through their letters, diaries and scrapbooks. Hear anecdotes from the research journey using the county’s archives.

On 21 September our researchers will explore the stories of Stephen Reynolds (Writer, fisherman, civil servant and activist), William Dunning (Dartmoor farmer), Sydney Frank Smith (Police officer) and Phyllis Dearman (Exeter’s first female ambulance driver).

On 16 November our researchers will explore the stories of Nina Coates (Entertainer and fundraiser), Alfred Rowden (Naturalist and photographer), Clara Andrew (Refugee worker) and Bertie Riley (Schoolboy sailor).

The ticket price includes tea, coffee and cake and the opportunity to chat with the researchers and curators.

This is a partnership event with Devon Remembers Heritage Project
