Join Kate Adie in a debate about Remembrance – its meaning and the future

A ‘Question Time’ style debate will discuss what remembrance means. The free event is being held at Dorset History Centre on Friday 9 November.

The panel will be chaired by Dr Fiona Cosson of Bournemouth University’s Public History course. Kate Adie will be joined by Stephen Boyce, head of the South-West Committee of the Heritage Lottery Fund, Symon Hill of the Peace Pledge Union and David Willey, curator at the Tank Museum.

The event will reflect on four years of national commemoration of the First World War and its achievements. And to ask, ‘what remembrance means in a modern context and what it may mean in the future.’

The evening will start with a short introduction from the county archivist, Sam Johnston. Audience members are invited to gather at 7pm for light refreshments before the debate commences at 7.30pm
