We invite you to a networking event for community researchers working on the First World War. The event will take place on Monday 18 July 2016 at Newcastle University, and will offer an opportunity for people to meet and share their work and experiences. Heritage Lottery Fund North East will be at the event to talk about the range of First World War projects being carried out across the region, and we are delighted to welcome the Worker’s Educational Association to showcase their own project researching the WEA in the North East during the First World War.As well as these talks and the networking opportunities throughout the day, we are also offering the chance to take part in an HLF Funding Application workshop for the development of future projects.
