DISPLAYS

The VEHS regularly organises special displays around the town. This is an important task to help encourage an appreciation and understanding of our rich shared heritage:

Displays in St Lawrence's Church

In collaboration with the Churches Conservation Trust, we have use of north vestry (the old clergy vestry) in St Lawrence's Church in which we have put on a sequence of displays there.

  • The history of the Abbey

  • The history of St Lawrence's church

  • A number of displays about Simon de Montfort and the First Battle of Evesham

  • A number of displays about World War 1

  • Music in Evesham

  • Herbs and spices in medieval times

  •  Frederick Preedy - architect and stained glass maker

Displays at the Riverside Shopping Centre

We were, for some time granted permission to adopt an unused shop front at the Riverside Shopping Centre for displays of information and items from the Society's collection. We had displays of Archaeology in Evesham, of World War 1, and of Simon de Montfort and the Battle of Evesham. 

After a short break, we returned to a new, larger, shop front at the Riverside with a new display about the Bell Tower and its bells. More recent displays in Riverside have included:

  • Aerial photos of Evesham (Jan 2016)

  • Evesham Evolving (scenes old and new) (August 2017)

  • Entertainments in Evesham (Feb 2018)

  • The Women's Land Army (March 2020)

  •  Frederick Preedy

  • Herbs and spices in medieval times

  • Coronations (a special display to mark the Platinum Jubilee)

The current displays are:

  • Shops in Old Evesham

  • Food in medieval times

  • A special display to mark the life of Queen Elizabeth and the Accession of King Charles

Displays at Evesham Station

We have mounted a number of display boards at Evesham Station in memory of the railwaymen killed in the two World Wars

​Displays at the Almonry

When the society was active in the Almonry, we mounted a series of displays there. Our display about the hospital at Abbey Manor, was followed by one featuring individual servicemen - part of a programme of events commemorating the First World War. We also expanded the displays of Simon de Montfort. (We are also proud to have been associated with the display by Pershore Arts at "No 8" in Pershore, on aspects of the First World War.

Display at the Library

We mounted a display at the library about the history of the cinemas in Evesham.

 

Displays elsewhere

We are always happy to consider mounting a display where space is available. We have (for a short time) mounted displays in Vine Mews and elsewhere.
