The Trench Brothers exhibition follows the journeys of soldiers from the Indian Army and British West Indies Regiment. On 19th August, New Haven Fort will host a day of activities for children to explore the soldiers’ stories further.

There will be three activities available for children to take part in.

Throughout the day, there is the opportunity to meet Nurse Peggy, a new recruit who is preparing for work at the Front. Meet Peggy and find out more about the role of women during the First World War and what it was like to nurse soldiers at the front line.

The session will be led by Freya Wynn-Jones, animateur and director of the Trench Brothers performance at the Brighton Dome.
