The Remembering for Peace exhibition will open at Bodelwyddan Castle at 2pm on 30th April, with a lecture on ‘Stories from Flintshire’s WW1 Memorials’ by Eifion and Viv Williams. Flintshire was a much bigger county in World War One than it is now and the people of Flintshire went to extraordinary lengths to record what had happened to its men in the conflict. Eifion and Viv are co-founders and managers of www.flintshirewarmemorials.com a website which aims to tell the stories of those who fell in the war. In their talk, they will be telling a selection of these stories.
The opening lecture on the 30th April is a FREE EVENT and you can register for your free ticket here or by calling Bodelwyddan Castle directly on 01745 584060.
From the 30th April to the 19th June the Remembering for Peace Exhibition will be exhibited at Bodelwyddan Castle, in partnership with the Wales for Peace project.
During this exhibition, the National Book of Remembrance for WW1 will be exhibited at Bodelwyddan Castle. The Book, in ornate calligraphy, lists over 35,000 fallen soldiers connected to Wales. This is a rare opportunity to see the Book as it’s normally safeguarded in pristine condition by the Welsh Centre for International Affairs, in the crypt at the Temple of Peace, Cardiff. The exhibition at Bodelwyddan is one in a series to coincide with the Wales Remembers programme, and includes an opportunity for the public to transcribe names of the fallen as a “digital act of remembrance”.
