The 100th anniversary of the end of the Battle of the Somme is being marked at Clitheroe Castle with an exhibition of poignant artwork by young people and an interesting talk by a leading historian.

‘Lost Generation’, created by artist Andy Farr, displays artwork and film created for the Lost Generation project, which has given young people in the Ribble Valley the chance to work creatively to help them understand what it was like for people their age during the First World War.

The exhibition runs until the end of July next year and the talk, by military expert Dr Stephen Bull, which discusses the battle and shows the important role played by north west regiments in the conflict, takes place at Clitheroe Castle Museum on Friday, November 18 from 2.30pm to 3.30pm.

The talk is free to attend, but booking is required, as places are limited. For more information or to book, please phone 01200 424568 or email clitheroecastle@lancashire.gov.uk.
