Finding Identities – Lancashire and the First World War

The Preston Remembers project is holding a conference in Preston on 23 & 24th November at the University of Central Lancashire & Preston museums.

Finding Identities: Lancashire and the First World War has a packed programme with talks, visits and film screenings. The key note speaker is historian Andy Robertshaw, director of the National Army Museum and adviser to the film War Horse.

Tickets are only £40 and include all refreshments and transport as part of the museum visits. Bookings and programme details are here:

As part of the programme I will be premiering recently digitised WWI film from the Preston collection in the British Film Institute. The collection was formed by Preston film maker and businessman Will Onda.

This will be a moving end to what should be an interesting couple of days and promote discussion and debate around the Centenary.
