Lights, Camera, Action! We’re counting down the days to our WW1 Film Project Awards Event.
The project has included children from five schools in the Wakefield district, creating films and learning about local soldiers and the roles they played in WW1.
Delivered in collaboration with Wakefield Libraries and Museums, we’ve discovered some amazing things along the way, including a diary from 1918 actually written in the trenches!
The project, funded by Heritage Lottery, has enabled the children to research, investigate and discover their local WW1 heritage, through the eyes of local soldiers.
The fantastic finalist films produced by the children are being showcased at Wakefield Cathedral on Thursday 3rd November, where the winners will be presented their awards by the Mayor of Wakefield.
Keep your eyes peeled for the winning films!
