Take a journey back in time and join our WW1 Recruitment Sergeants as they welcome you as ‘conscripts’ to the British Army in this fully interactive and inspirational learning experience set during WW1 in 1916. Pupils will discover the joys of drill, explore the causes of WW1 and be introduced to the basic kit issued to every soldier. Our Recruitment Sergeants will put you through your paces, introduce you to army life, explain the importance of the regiment and lead you in ‘swearing the oath’. It’s time you do your duty as you prepare for ‘the big push’ and answer ‘a call to arms!’

Note: The Museum is temporarily closed to school visits, however our popular and interactive sessions will be delivered from the Museum of Lancashire.
