Come along to our free WORLD WAR TWO EVACUATION event at Stockport Art Gallery on Sunday 30 October at 1pm until 4pm. Activities for all ages! Learn about the evacuees who fled Guernsey in June 1940 and found safety in Northern England. Children can re enact an evacuation ship journey, write a Red Cross Letter, and peep inside an evacuee's suitcase. Meet the Guernsey evacuees and hear their stories. Listen to wartime entertainment and share your memories with Stockport Heritage Trust. Free entry and free tea and biscuits.
