Are you interested in the First World War?

Have you ever wondered what a soldier wore, what he ate, how he lived, fought and died in the 'Great War for Civilisation'?

Then why not visit the Museum of the Manchester Regiment on the following dates and try on the uniform he wore and handle the equipment that he carried.

Meet Tommy at The Museum of the Manchester Regiment in Ashton Town Hall on Wednesdays during school holidays from 11am - 3pm.

Come along for the whole session or just drop in. It's free!
