Internee George Kenner at Frith Hill Camp

12 November 2022 - 25 February 2023

We are absolutely delighted to celebrate the opening of a new exhibition at the fascinating Surrey Heath Museum and Heritage Gallery to commemorate the internment of one internee whose unique artwork is an incredible record of life within the Camps.

The exhibition features WW1 internee George Kenner's unique collection of original artwork from his time at Frith Hill Camp at the start of his internment (kindly donated to Surrey Heath by Kenner's daughter), together with items on loan from the Knockaloe Charitable Trust's own collections, and the Charity is are delighted to also be giving a talk as part of Surrey Heath's forthcoming event marking this very special exhibition.

The exhibition is open every Tuesday to Saturday 11am-4.30pm. 12 November 2022 - 25 February 2023
