Highlights include:

Ask a WW1 soldier: Living history group Scots in the Great War occupy the front line and answer your questions about life in the trenches.

Explore the trenches: Try the different technologies that soldiers used to communicate secretly and keep an eye on the enemy. Can you break a code.... spot clues in No Man’s Land.... hear what the other side is up to?

Modelling Transport: Charles Mawer displays models that tell the story of War Department light railways in war and peace.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Life in the Trenches are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
