Kent County Diary of Events - 2016


February 2016

4th - 26 February.       National Trust Exhibition.    click here.

We have been working with the Volunteer and Community Development Manager at Chartwell this year to commemorate VJ Day and to provide support for their Winter Exhibition.  It has been a joint effort with other local groups and we are very pleased to announce that final preparations are underway to put the finishing touches to an extraordinary experience that recreates the sights and sounds of the era.  From Recruitment to Demob and all in between the exhibition draws you through the Soldiers experience.  Exhibits include real letters from Soldiers to their families back home, trenches, uniforms and artwork.
