Unexpectedly amazing
Mar 2017 • Friends
Although we were all quite knowledgable about WW1, we learnt so much from this visit about the social and personal dimensions of the war. The Whitgift Exhibition Centre is a hidden gem on our doorstep.
We were so pleased that the exhibition was extended.

Intersting and thought provoking exhibition showing many aspects of the Great War from all sides. Memories from old Whitgiftians were especially poingant.

Amazing exhibition. Organised by the school but it is done really well.

This would be a valid exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, it is an excellent small exhibit, with interesting displays from WWI.

What an excellent exhibition. I cannot imagine all the work and planning that went into putting it together. We spent far more time than expected. So much to see. I love the personal stories from the British, French and German perspectives! Its now free and I would say if you have spare this time weekend try and visit. Lovely cafe and cakes and gift shop at the end and lovely garden in the school grounds.

Even friends of mine who have studied WW1 for years enthused about this exhibition. Said they saw stuff they had never seen before.

A friend said to allow 2 hours, but we spent the whole afternoon (12-4:30pm, with a brief tea break!) and still didn't have a chance to read everything! Very professional set-up, with fantastic displays of period rooms and costumes, as well as accounts from diaries and letters. I loved the poems dotted about, and intriguing original films of events at the time. The photos and words of the people who experienced the war made it more personal, and the fact that many of them had been local residents and/or had attended Whitgift School, made the whole experience very moving. One of the young pilots (and former student) was killed, aged 19, by the legendary 'Red Baron'. And it is also poignant that stories of French and German soldiers and civilians are also included in the exhibition. The 'Edwardian Cafe' is quaint and cosy, and the scone I had was delicious and light!
