An astonishing new discovery at Maidstone Grammar School for Girls has uncovered an exquisite book of paintings of school life undertaken by the school's art teacher as the war unfolded. These unique, hand-painted images reveal the reality of the lives of school children and their teachers during World War II. Now English Heritage is giving you the chance to hear the fascinating story behind the paintings and see the original book for yourself. Light refreshments included.

Accessibility: This event has been graded as having moderate access.
