Horse Drawn War

25 February to 01 April 2017

Venue: Bo'ness Library, Scotland's Close, Bo'ness EH51 0AH

As part of our programme for the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology and as a companion event for our screening of 'the original War Horse' – the community screening of 'A Couple of Down and Outs' (Sat 18 Mar) – HippFest presents a unique exhibition commemorating the role of 6 million British horses that went to the Great War.

This exhibition highlights the role of horses before, during and after World War 1, and explores the myth and reality surrounding horses in war by taking a look at their changing use in the British army until the last cavalry charge of the Great War on 11 November 1918.
