In times of great barbarity our resourcefulness and sense of community goes into hyper drive. That is what happened during WW1 when Chorlton-born David Lloyd George was chosen as Minister of Munitions, faced with the task of changing Britain’s bleak outlook. To commemorate this appointment, the Museum of Science & Industry is opening the world premiere of its war exhibition, The Innovation Race: Manchester’s Makers Join the First World War. Mancunian stories will be heard in the presence of artefacts, diaries and photographs that show how the region’s resourcefulness played a significant part in the eventual victory.
Sat 28 Mar 2015 – 1 Mar 2016, Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) Liverpool Road, Manchester M3 4FP. Tel: 0161 832 2244, times vary, FREE, www.mosi.org.uk
