A programme of free displays throughout the four-year centenary will provide opportunities to explore a range of themes, sitters and artists associated with the First World War. Future displays include images of conscientious objectors (June 2016 – February 2017) and VC Recipients (February – October 2017) and a selection of classical composers and musicians that responded to the conflict (2018).
