Lanarkshire’s War

About Lanarkshire’s War

Lanarkshire’s War explores the 1st World War not only from the experience of those caught up in the horror of the front lines, but by those back home, who were also part of those catastrophic events.

Culture NL Museums and Heritage and South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture Museum Service have been collaborating over the past 18 months to produce the exhibition. Using social, industrial, military and archive items from the collections of both authorities, the exhibition features personal stories, allowing visitors an insight into the impact of war on all aspects Lanarkshire’s social and industrial life, as well as at the war front.

This Heritage Lottery and Museum Galleries Scotland funded partnership project, is part of a four year national UK programme, commemorating the centenary of the First World War.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Lanarkshire’s War are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
