Fife's Great War
Commemorating World War One
Fife Cultural Trust marked the anniversary of World War One in a variety of ways;
- With a special exhibition on MAC, our mobile museum
- By making some fascinating diaries and letters from our archives available online
- With a series of special event weeks across Fife for the whole community
- By running theatre workshops for primary schools in Fife
There was a fantastic interactive exhibition Moving Stories on our mobile museum, MAC. Available free of charge to schools and community venues this features Sea Front, a short film by award-winning animator Claire Lamond.
A Week to Remember
Funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund has allowed us to run a series of special event weeks across Fife.
