National Memorial Arboretum to host 2019 Remember Together Youth Festival

A series of learning events for young people are taking place at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas.

The 2018 Remember Together Youth Festival

The Remember Together Youth Festival 2019 is aimed at KS3 and KS4 students and is being organised in partnership with The Royal British Legion.

The event will focus on the Second World War and how the alliance forged between Britain, the Commonwealth, the United States and the free armies of Europe liberated Europe from Nazi rule following decisive victories in Normandy and Italy, and the Far East.

This free festival takes place from 8th to 12th July and will give students the opportunity to experience a variety of activities, including guided tours, self-led activities, and facilitated workshops.

Aysha Afridi, head of heritage and learning at the National Memorial Arboretum, said: “Our inaugural youth festival was a tremendous success.

“We’re confident that Remember Together Youth Festival 2019 will build on this impressive foundation, delivering a fantastic programme of fulfilling and enriching activities for all participating students.“

Each school will be given a bespoke programme of activities for its students, while coach bursaries are available from The Royal British Legion to support transportation of students to and from the arboretum.
