WW1 Burslem: Stoke Remembers 2018
This year is 100 years since the end of WW1. Burslem has a special connection with The Great War. If you are visiting the town to connect and remember we would be delighted to invite you to visit Barewall and we will help to direct you.
We have connected with The Britsh Royal Legion "Thank You" campaign as well as the WW1 trail for Stoke-on-Trent (Stoke Remembers) and Burslem Welcomes to help make your visit to Stoke-on-Trent and Burslem a Visit to Remember.
Burslem hosts every Friday 10 to 12noon an countrywide installation of There But not There at Elim Church / Burslem Lighthouse in Moorland Road which is open to the public to experience and help to honour those that did not come back from the Great War.
A number of the Burslem churches including Elim / Lighthouse, St Johns and St Pauls and Longport church all have rollcalls which you may be interested in visiting. Burslem Park also has a WW1 memorial garden, and Burslem has a very moving and beautiful stone war memorial in Swan Square outside Swan Bank church.
Burslem also has a number of cafes / restaurants and real ale public houses. A WW1 themed real ale trail has also been provided by The Potteries Pubs Preservation Society. Details are available in the participating pubs. Can we suggest you start at Titanic Brewery's tap The Bulls Head or the Grade II listed Duke of William located at St John's Square, or at The Bursley Real Ale House in Wedgwood Place.
Full information on guidance can be found at Barewall gallery (to Nov 11th) or Burslem School of Art (to 30th Aug). Leaflets are available throughout the town via Burslem Welcomes leaflet racks.
