Gloucestershire Remembers WW1 Partnership Project

Information about the project's partners

Gloucestershire Remembers WW1 is a joint project, led by the Everyman Theatre, to remember the Great War at a local level.  Other project partners are Gloucestershire Archives, The Wilson (formerly known as Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum), the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum and The History Press

The partners ran a range of community research and commemoration activities. These began in November 2013 and finished at the end of December 2015. 

The project has received a £59,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and further funding from the The Summerfield TrustBPE Solicitors LLP and the DG Albright Trust. 

Events included a community play at the Everyman Theatre in July 2014. This was based on the War Poet FW Harvey's unpublished novel, which is deposited at Gloucestershire Archives.  Staff at the Everyman are also hoping to use people's community research as inspiration for other community workshops, education work and performances that form part of the project's programme.

You can watch Archives' staff talking about the project here on YouTube. And you can see how we can help you commemorate the war in your community at www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/archives/WW1.
