Exhibition "Songs of the Somme" at The Wilfred Owen Story, Birkenhead, Wirral, 1st July 2016

To mark the centenary of the Somme Offensive, from 1st July 2016 The Wilfred Owen Story in Argyle Street, Birkenhead, Wirral, UK is mounting an exhibition of some of the poets and writers who were in The Somme area during the First World War, many of whom were killed or wounded.

The Wilfred Owen Story is a small museum dedicated to the memory of Wilfred Owen, arguably the world’s most famous First World War Soldier Poet.  Run entirely by volunteers, the WOS receives no funding, so it is always best to check before going along.
