The Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay will visit the National Memorial Arboretum in the heart of the National Forest in Staffordshire on 20 July 2022, revealed as part of the full England route today.
Linda Kitson was commissioned by the Imperial War Museum to be the official war artist for the Falklands War. Displayed at the Arboretum forty years later, her vivid drawings provide a unique window into the experience of those who fought on the front line, reminding us of the sacrifice that they made.
The National Memorial Arboretum has opened a new free exhibition featuring frontline sketches of the Falklands War by Linda Kitson, who was appointed as the official war artist by the Imperial War Museum.
During February 2022 we asked our visitors and supporters to use the Wild Arboretum exhibition as inspiration, grab a camera and get out into the Arboretum grounds to see what natural elements could be found to inspire their photography.
