Don't miss these lunchtime events at Royal Cornwall Museum as part of the Heart of Conflict exhibition public program:

Telling Stories: Putting Pen to Paper

Wednesday 7th June 2017
10.30am – 12.30pm

This session will allow you to discover tales and write stories that, until now, have never been celebrated. Our Heart of Conflict exhibition on Cornwall during World War One looks at events across all classes, and affecting all lives: from conscientious objectors to stretcher bearers, the home front to the front line, the Women’s Land Army to the Nursing Yeomanry to the Munitionettes. You’ll uncover a wealth of material that will lead you to create a short story… perhaps the first of many.

This session is open to everyone – including complete beginners. Led by Bridging Arts. Booking essential, 10 places only.
