The Royal Pavilion Estate and the First World War Tour

Mon 16 May 2016

We're sorry to announce that this event has been cancelled.

From 1914 to 1919 the Royal Pavilion, Brighton Dome Concert Hall and Corn Exchange were used by the military as hospitals, first for soldiers from Indian regiments then by British limbless men who were taught skills to help them get post-war work. This tour explores the spaces transformed for medical use and includes archive photographs, letters and documents, before a tea taken at the Royal Pavilion.
