 The New Remembrance Centre at the NMA

Walking around the new multi-million-pound Remembrance Centre, it’s hard not to be moved by the stature of what has been created. Costing close to £16 million and almost 31,000 sq ft in size, the National Memorial Arboretum now has a building that matches the breath-taking memorials that the site houses.

Financed by the Legion, the new centre is at the cutting edge of design, interactive exhibits and Remembrance – bringing the Arboretum bang up to date and making it an immersive and powerful experience for all who visit.

It has snapshots of some of the national activities we will be announcing more fully in coming months – for updates, please refer to www.britishlegion.org.uk/ww1centenary. There is also a section on how you can apply for funds for your own Centenary projects, and a few success stories.
