Lawrence Rowntree Exhibition

Lawrence Rowntree Exhibition

In 2017 we created an exhibition for display in the Community Room at the Castle Museum York. It was part of the wider World War I exhibition on display from 2014-2018.

See below the film that summarises his tragically brief life.



For the text of a short play that was performed in conjunction with the exhibition, by Chris Cade, and commissioned by York Museum Trust, see PLAY SCRIPT Lawrence Rowntreedocx

The exhibition was on at the Castle Museum for almost 2 years. See here for the Press release.
