Enfield Museum presents a FREE exhibition marking the centenary of the First World War.

From bombing raids by German airships to wounded soldiers returning from the front, this was a dramatic and life-changing chapter in Enfield’s history. This year, Enfield Museum is putting on an exhibition to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. This exhibition will look at how the war affected the residents of Enfield - both in the trenches and on the home front. It will also delve into the important roles and contributions to the war effort of those living within the borough.

To commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of World War One, Crafts Council and Forty Hall & Estate present an exhibition of two contemporary craft installations under the ‘Curate with Us’ programme. The exhibition brings together two of the UK’s most significantmakers for the first time and offers quiet reflection on the collective and personal impact of loss, legacy, testimony and commemoration. The two works ’Everyman’s Dream’ by Clare Twomey and Julian Stair’s ‘Reliquary for a Common Man’, whilst not directly concerned with the First World War, offer a means of contemplating themes associated with commemoration, remembrance and the significance of the First World War. www.fortyhallestate.co.uk

Exhibition.

Inspired by the ghost story of a maid who perished in the wine cellar and is rumoured to haunt the Grand Staircase, artist Matthew Paggett exhibits a body of work ruminating on the body and spirit of the servant. The maid now has a name, Karen Lodge (a name which runs through Paggett’s recent work) and her master, who brought about her demise, is a feckless tyrant. Exhibition includes large finely drawings of insects attracted to her decomposing body, informed by the field of forensic entomology. Visit the Grand Staircase where a series of large, hand-drawn words form a sentence ‘Top to Bottom, Karen Lodges Here’, describing the ghost’s presence and eternal entrapment between one level and another. ww.fortyhallestate.co.uk
