Bogside/Brandywell Men’s Shed community outreach session and museum visit

2017-11-01 # Bogside - Brandywell  - 001

On Wednesday 1st November we had a visit from the Bogside/ Brandywell Men’s Shed. The group had enjoyed a handling box session from the team at their community centre last month looking at WWI objects and discussing the symbols that emerged from that period such as the poppy.

First stop on their visit was to see the Poppies: Weeping Window sculpture which is on display at the Ulster Museum until December 3rd. A quick bite to eat before the group enjoyed a guided tour of some of the other displays in the museum including the Decade of Centenaries exhibit in the Modern History gallery. The group had a great time and were very impressed with the museum and are looking forward to working with the Living Legacies team again.
