Lincolnshire Archives Exhibition Programme 2015

Family History Day - 30 May 2015

Come and meet the archives team and see what we have to offer family historians, new and experienced. There will be tours of the Search Room and staff available to answer your questions.

1915: Gunbuses, Gas & Gallipoli - 24-25 July 2015

Using original documents and photographs this exhibition will show the important contribution that Lincolnshire and its people made to the war effort during 1915. The display will cover such topics as life in the trenches, county Victoria Cross winners, the development of the first tank and the beginnings of military aircraft production in Lincoln. The major events of the year will also be examined, including the sinking of the Lusitania, the shelling of the troopship Mercian, the battles of Neuve Chapelle and Loos and the ill-fated Gallipoli landings.

Lancaster & Vulcan: Avro Aircraft in Lincolnshire - 14-15 August 2015

Following last year’s hugely successful visit to Lincolnshire by the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s Lancaster, this exhibition will examine the county’s strong connections with the aircraft that were designed by A. V. Roe & Company (Avro). Using original documents and photographs the display will chart the development of Avro’s designs from the 504K biplane of the First World War to the Blue Steel nuclear missile of the 1960s. The display will focus on the iconic Lancaster and Vulcan bombers, which have a special connection with the county, but the visitor will also have a chance to see documents and images relating to the many less well known aircraft produced by Avro, such as the Anson, Lancastrian and Lincoln.

Lincolnshire Railways II - 11-12 September 2015

Our 2009 exhibition on the history of the county’s railways was one of our most popular recent events, so after five years the time seems ripe for a second display of train-related documents. Lincolnshire Archives has acquired a considerable amount of railway material in recent months and many of these items will be on public display for the first time. The exhibition will include photographs of many classic locomotives, such as the record-breaking LNER A4 Class, the Class 55 “Deltics” and the InterCity 125 high speed trains. There will also be a chance for visitors to see railway maps, track plans, designs for station buildings, tickets and timetables.

Magna Carta and the Middle Ages: Knights, Barons and Kings - 13-14 November 2015

2015 marks the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, the Great Charter of the Liberties of England. Lincolnshire Archives will be paying tribute to this anniversary with a display of documents and information about this period, and the impact of this great charter on our history.
