Corwen Museum re-opens on Saturday February 24th with a spectacular Open Weekend full of displays and activities based on the First World War.  Come and see the army camp and taste the food they ate.   Find out about the weapons they used and the uniforms they wore.  The Exhibition runs on the Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm.  There is free admission.


Inside the Museum there will be a special poppy installation created by the Corwen Youth Club, with 145 poppies to commemorate the 144 men and 1 woman who are named on the Edeyrnion War Memorials.  Books of Remembrance will also be displayed along with our new Exhibition on how Corwen and its villages helped the war effort. There will be a reconstructed trench, with officer’s dugout and hospital field station.  We are grateful for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to enable us to put on these displays.

The Museum is also celebrating the Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), with the beautiful work of renowned stained glass designer, Alf Fisher, displayed in our lovely chapel windows.  They will be amazing.

This is a weekend not to be missed!
