When the Guns Fell Silent – Hedon Museum Exhibition

EXTRA!! This Exhibition and Hedon Museum are to be open during the Hedon Christmas Lights from 5:00pm

After four long and bitter years of war, the allies agreed to a ceasefire request from the Germans. An Armistice was signed on the 9th November 1918 and two days later the German Army surrendered to Marshal Foch.

As part of the town of Hedon’s programme of events to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice of the Great War, Hedon Museum is holding this special exhibition.

The exhibition follows the tragic events of the war, but concentrates on the contribution and sacrifices made by the people of Hedon and Holderness. Special emphasis is placed on keeping alive the memory of the brave locals who contributed and fell in Holderness and other areas of the conflict. 

Exhibition runs Wednesday 17th October – Wednesday 28th November 2018. Opening times are every Wednesday and Saturday 10am – 4pm. Special Open Night at Hedon Christmas Lights, Friday 30 November from 5pm.
