Visitors will get the chance to watch a mix of archive footage and animation, highlighting the outbreak of war, the horrors of the battlefield and life on the Home Front in Staffordshire.

Tom said: “I was delighted to be asked to produce the poems originally as part of the county’s plans to commemorate the Great War.

“The videos and animation have really brought the them to life.

“Feedback on the exhibition has been very positive too, with the poems continuing to connect with people on many levels both emotionally and intellectually.”

For more details on the exhibition and other locations it will tour across the county visit the Staffordshire County Council website.

The films and poems are also available online.
