Thursday 6th July
12noon – 1.15pm
Museum of Wigan Life
£2.50 per person (incl. tea/coffee)

July 2017 marks the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele, an event made infamous by the mud and slaughter faced by troops on both sides during the First World War. After three months of fighting, causalities numbered 325,000 for the Allies and 260,000 for the Germans. The huge loss of life for limited gains continues to make this major battle controversial today. Why did the battle take place? How was it fought? What was the reality on the ground? Find out more about the military context of this battle and the conditions for those who lived and died through it.

Places are limited so booking is essential on (01942) 828128 or wiganmuseum@wigan.gov.uk.
Venue:  Museum of Wigan Life, Library Street, Wigan, WN1 1NU.
