  • You’ll be able to experience ‘Recommissioned‘ at the City Museum on the evenings of Friday 4th and Saturday 5th November, during Light Up Lancaster.
  • We are also offering a series of related talks during the day on Saturday 5th November.
  • Plus you can take part in a family arts workshop, creating replicas of the birds seen soaring over the battlefields.
