New Temporary Exhibition – RAF100: A History of RAF Lyneham
16th January – 16th June 2018
A new exhibition, ‘RAF100: A History of RAF Lyneham’ will open on January 16th at REME Museum. As part of RAF 100 which sees the Royal Air Force celebrating 100 years since its formation, the REME Museum will be hosting a temporary exhibition which looks at the history of the site when it was an air base.
Using historical images as well as interviews with serving and former RAF personnel and families who lived and worked on the base, the exhibition will provide visitors with an overview of the important work undertaken at RAF Lyneham.
As part of the exhibition there will be three evening talks, open to the public. Please note booking is required via our website: www.rememuseum.org.uk.
13th June: End of an Era, a talk by Mike Neville CBE – Fully Booked
Tickets will cost £10 per person and will allow entry to the talk as well as access to the main Museum after the talk has finished. Talks start at 7 pm, doors will be open from 6.30 pm.
We are keen to encourage visitors and the local community to share their own memories of living and working at RAF Lyneham. Visitors are invited to bring in photographs which they can have included on the exhibition walls allowing other visitors to see. There will also be the opportunity to write about their favourite memories.
For those who want to participate online, we have created a social media hash tag #RAF100Lyneham for people to come together and share their memories and stories about RAF Lyneham and what this period of history has meant for them.
