‘Keep the Home Fires Burning’ A special relaxed drop-in event to explore and contribute to the local heritage project, The Boys on the Plaque, bringing together local research, creative workshops and exhibitions, heritage activities and screenings to explore personal memories of Brighton & Hove residents during WWI wartime and the stories that have been left behind for us to rediscover.
For one day only, Fabrica, formerly the Holy Trinity Church, will open its doors to the public for an afternoon of stimulating and engaging activities and exhibits to discover more about our local community and inspire new ways of considering our home front experience of the Great War.
All ages are welcome. Free hot and soft drinks and are available throughout, as well as some lovely cakes, and guests are invited to relax and chat whilst enjoying the event and activities.
Visitors are also invited to bring their own stories and keepsakes to share with volunteers and staff and contribute to our research project, which seeks to uncover the history of each of 95 local soldiers who are commemorated in the church. Could you be a relative of one of the Boys? They mostly lived in the streets surrounding the church – you can find a list of the names online hereboysontheplaque.wordpress.com/the-names-on-the-plaque/
