Homecoming Hearts Exhibition: 6th – 13th November 2019

1 Oct 2019

An international collaboration

An opportunity to see the many embroidered “Hearts” (loosely based on a template by Helen M. Stevens) created in support of SSAFA (The Armed Forces Charity) and sent from all around the world to commemorate the end of WWI, including several contributions by Helen herself. During 1919, many servicemen and women were only just arriving back with their loved ones.

This intimate exhibition remembers their contribution to the war effort and the ultimate sacrifice given by so many others. Not to be missed by any embroidery lover or history buff.

6 Nov – 13 November: Open Wed. 6th; Sat. 9th; Sun. 10th; Wed. 13th.  10.30 – 6.00 Admission free
