European Heritage Open Day returns this week - EVENT CANCELLED

Campbell hosting two events at EHOD 2022

European Heritage Open Day returns this weekend and will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. More than 200 historic buildings and landmarks will open in Northern Ireland this September, offering free entry with many activities for you to enjoy as part of Northern Ireland's contribution to the European Heritage Days. There is a packed programme of virtual and open door in-person events and activities ranging from guided tours, talks, lectures, walks and brand new places to visit. The theme for this year's event is sustainability and Campbell College will be hosting two events for the community on Saturday 10th September.

One of our events will take place on campus in our Junior School outdoor learning areas. We are very fortunate to have a Forest School and nature/nurture garden in our lower school. In partnership with Field Studies Ireland we will provide workshops for school-aged children focusing on the natural environment around us. We are grateful to Miss Brown for her help in organizing this event. More information can be found here: EHOD 2022 website.

Our second event is in partnership with The Somme Museum. We are delighted that an opportunity has arisen for the Men Behind The Glass exhibit to be on display during the EHOD 2022 weekend. Thanks to a connection with Andrew Heasley (8647) the exhibit will be on view at Craigavon House, former home of Sir James Craig. More information can be found here


Many of you may be unfamiliar with Men Behind the Glass. It was a project that was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and pays tribute to those Campbell College men and boys lost in The Great War, their families and friends and to those who fought and survived. Over 100 photographs have been embedded in the wood panelled walls of Central Hall for decades and this project witnessed the preservation of these images thanks to the Public Record Office NI (PRONI). In addition to preserving and digitising all these images this project opened up the College archives, working in partnership with the community groups, schools and organisations all over Ireland, to tell the stories of these boys and men; how they lived as well as how they died. An exhibition was created, to tell the stories of the contrubtion our Campbell Community made to The Great War. To learn more,  please visit out Men Behind The Glass site.
