About the Worcestershire World War One Hundred programme
Since 2014 cultural and heritage organisations from across Worcestershire have been working together to commemorate the centenary of World War One with an outstanding programme of events and activities under the banner Worcestershire World War One Hundred.
The programme, which received the largest Heritage Lottery Fund First World War Grant outside London, has held displays, services, children’s activities, visited schools with education resources, shown films, produced legacy trails in print and online, published a daily diary of events in county newspapers, supported local commemorative projects, and collected the documents and stories of the county in the People’s Collection.
The Project has commemorated key battles, individual soldiers, linked with towns in France and Belgium, investigated the work on the Home Front, in the Vale of Evesham and in munitions factories in Redditch and Worcester, and recorded details of war memorials.
Over 60 people have volunteered and over 100,000 have participated or visited WWW100 activities all across the county, as well as working with veteran associations of conflicts since 1918.
