'The East Kent Regiment, Canterbury and the Great War'

Join us to celebrate the launch of a new Templeman Gallery exhibition, 'Kent, its Regiments and the First World War' by attending a lecture expanding on the exhibition's themes.Professor Mark Connelly will give a lecture entitled 'The East Kent Regiment, Canterbury and the Great War' to launch the exhibition at 2.30pm on Monday 29th October 2018. The talk will explore the links between Canterbury and the Buffs during the First World War. It will show how the city and surrounding region maintained a great interest in the actions of its local regiment, even after conscription led to great changes in its demographic. Home and Fighting fronts are often thought of as very distinct and separate entities, but this lecture will highlight the degree to which they were inextricably linked and that communication between the two was continual.Attendees are welcome to visit the exhibition afterwards, which is held in the Templeman Gallery and will be running until January 2019.During this event, we will also be launching our new project 'Diaries of the Here and Now', where we are inviting everyone to record their experiences of 11 November 2018 for future generations.
