The Innovation Race: Manchester’s Makers Join the First World War
02 September 2015 - 30 April 2016
The Innovation Race: Manchester’s Makers Join the First World War features over 30 unique and original never before seen artefacts, images and documents to bring to life the largely untold stories of how Mancunian innovation helped to turn around the outcome of the First World War.
Tied in with the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Ministry of Munitions, this family friendly exhibition, complete with hands-on gadgets, commemorates David Lloyd George’s visit to Manchester where his rally call for the city’s makers to step up their war effort resulted in the overwhelming support from the ordinary factory worker to the most eminent scientists and engineers.
