In partnership with Step Short and Folkestone Town Council
Discover the journey undertaken by millions of men during the First World War as they left their civilian lives to take up arms and answer their country’s call.
Explore the crucial role Folkestone played as a refuge for the thousands of Belgians who fled the German war machine. Their plight touched the British nation and prompted many men to join the war effort.
This fascinating exhibition draws on the rich Collection of the National Army Museum along with local artefacts and stories to explore how Folkestone became a gateway between Britain and the rest of Europe.
11 April 2015, 10.00am-4.00pm
Discover more about the impact of Folkestone during the early months of the First World War in this family-friendly event. Meet soldiers wounded from the front and those returning on leave as they cross paths with Kitchener’s volunteers on their way to France.
