My Family in the Great War
15 November, 2018, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Join Professor Tony Curtis for an illustrated talk on his family in the First World War, including readings from his own work and from classic First World War writers and poets, as well as artwork from Paul Nash, E.H. Shepherd, Frank Brangwyn, Henry Moore and others. He will weave together untold, remarkable stories and some of the most memorable writing and images of the century.
2018 will be a special year of remembrance as the ‘war to end all wars’ is commemorated after one hundred years. Professor Tony Curtis has researched the First World War experiences of both his Pembrokeshire and Berkshire families. The Barrahs from Pembrokeshire and the Curtises from Berkshire served and died in conflicts from South Africa and Mesopotamia to the Western Front and the North Sea.
The evening will be introduced by Swansea University’s Professor M. Wynn Thomas and will also include an exhibition of 20 panels depicting notable campaigns and Welsh figures from the First World War by Swansea artist Jeff Phillips.
