Event Description

Come to Bruce Castle to see the London Transport Museum bringing an original and restored 1WW Battle Bus to mark the launch of the new exhibition 'FROM TOTTENHAM TO THE TRENCHES'. This B-type bus was made in nearby Walthamstow.

'From Tottenham to the Trenches' is a community exhibition co-curated by young volunteers and students from Northumberland Park Community School to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme in 1916.
