The second talk of the series accompanying the Nantwich and the First World War exhibition running at Nantwich Museum until Sat 27 Sept will take place at 3pm on September 3.

Bill Pearson of Reaseheath College will speak on Food Production around the time of World War 1.

Great Britain was not self sufficient in food in the years leading up to the war. The talk will examine the changes in farming in Cheshire around the time of World War 1. What happened at home when men and horses had gone to the battlefields? The talk will take place in the Millennium Gallery on the ground floor of the museum. Tickets cost £3.00 (Museum Members £2) and are available from the museum shop.

The exhibition is being financed by a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant of £3,800 covering the cost of the display materials, interactive elements, a programme of events and accompanying literature. It has also enabled members of the museum involved in its development to make fact-finding visits to other museums.
