The Norfolk Regiment on the Somme

We’re very pleased to announce that in November we will be holding two very different events to commemorate Armistice Day at the Millennium Library.

On Thursday 13th November historian Steve Smith will be giving a talk about the Battle of the Somme from the point of view of the Norfolk Regiment.

The talk will start at 6.00pm and will be fully illustrated as Steve intends to visit the battlefield this month to have the most up to date images possible.

Steve will talk for about an hour and then there will be time for questions.  Steve’s brand new book about Norfolk during WW1 will also be on sale at the event.

Tickets are £2 and can be purchased from the Sound and Vision Desk at the library or by emailing norwich.admin.lib@norfolk.gov.uk
