A display of works revealing the contribution of horses to the war effort.

During the First World War, thousands of horses were taken from civilian life and prepared for use by the military. Here, paintings by Lucy Kemp-Welch, Cecil Aldin, Lionel Edwards, Algernon Talmage, Lady Butler and Edwin Noble depict their journey from peacetime occupations in rural England to active service on the Western Front.

These are shown alongside works by young people from Priestlands School and newly commissioned pieces by resident artist James Aldridge, which have been inspired by the War Horse story.
