War Heritage Roadshow coming to Swan Hill

The War Heritage Roadshow, an Antiques Roadshow-inspired event, is coming to the Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery on Friday, 17 November.

From 10am to 4pm, Australia’s top preservation and conservation experts will examine war memorabilia at the gallery.

Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery Director Ian Tully said the roadshow was designed to help preserve Australia’s wartime history, from the Boer War through to the most recent conflicts.

“Many local families have items of service and wartime memorabilia that help tell the story of Australia’s war history and represent community contributions to the war effort,” Mr Tully said.

“The roadshow will help families better understand the stories behind the memorabilia that has been passed down through the generations, and also give them tools to help care for and preserve their memorabilia at home.

“Places will be limited, so we’re encouraging anyone who is interested in bringing in memorabilia to book their place now to make sure they don’t miss out.”
