Anne and Liz putting finishing touches to the Birmingham Children of War display in the Children’s Library. This will be the starting point of the Children’s Trail which forms part of the WW1 event on Saturday 11th March. Trail leaflets can be collected in the Children’s Library from 1pm on Saturday. The trail finishes on Level 4 where children, with their accompanying adults, can do a number of related craft activities.
Also on Level 4 will be a pop-up display of archive documents and local history books used in researching childrens lives in WW1, mini-talks by project volunteers and an exhibition featuring content from the project’s newly published learning guide. Look out for Scouts performing semaphore signalling. And listen out for the Midlands Hospital Choir singing patriotic WW1 songs.
The display in the Children’s Library will stay in situ for 6 weeks. We are grateful to the staff for their support.
