Evacuating The Past
Sunday 30 October | Stockport Art Gallery and War Memorial
Using oral histories of Guernsey WW2 Evacuation and the English Home Front, this event shows how war affects ordinary citizens through dislocation and displacement. Activities for children include a ‘Guernsey Evacuation Ship’ activity and a local school project on ‘Evacuees in our School’. Other activities include: ‘Meet the Guernsey Evacuees’, film screenings, displays and an opportunity to handle WW2 artefacts.
This event is part of the Manchester Science Festival
