Two of the memorials from the City Art Gallery archives have been restored and the third, the Street Shrine memorial in Thornley Street, is in the process of being restored. This National Heritage Open Day Event, celebrated the City treasures in the Mayoral Suite as well as saying thank you to those who engaged and contributed to this WW1 commemoration project and events. Friday’s event included an exhibition, a walk and presentations on the all restored memorials: Wolverhampton City Council’s Head of Arts and Culture Marguerite Nugent spoke as well as University of Wolverhampton PhD student Claire Jones.
