A display about Brigg in the First World War is sure to attract visitors to Brigg Heritage Centre.

Pupils from Sir John Nelthorpe School have been researching the human issues for Brigg residents during the war. Memorabilia and a range of artefacts from the time have been collected since the start of the year and research has involved family members still living locally who are related to soldiers.

The exhibition will be open from early November to tie in with Remembrance in the town. The Heritage Centre, which can be found in the town’s Angel building in the Market Place, has now attracted more than 8,000 visitors since it opened in 2013.

A Festival of Remembrance concert is being held in the Angel Suite at 7.30pm on Saturday November 8.

The concert will feature music and readings from the 1914-18 era.

Tickets are available from the Brigg Town Council Office in the Angel Suite, priced £5 for adults and £2.50 for juniors.
