It’s all go here at the War Memorial as the final preparations are being put in place for this weekend’s European Heritage Open Days. We’ll have members from the Wartime Living History Association showing us what life was like for the US GIs who were based here during the Second World War, they have a display of what a soldiers living quarters would have looked like and will be giving three talks on different themes related to the US Forces in Northern Ireland.
On top of that you’ll be able to buy very tasty US themed food from the Fabulous Food Factory, try your hand at making your own patriotic pin badges, watch the excellent Brian Desmond Hurst film A Letter from Ulster filmed in 1942 and on Sunday you’ll be able to hear some lunch time jazz from the Siobhann Petitt Jazz trio.
We’ll be open on both Saturday and Sunday (8th and 9th September) from 10am – 4.30pm.
Hope you can make it!
Here is the programme of events so you can see all the great things we’ve got going on…
