Gateways to the First World War is a centre for public engagement with the First World War centenary, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The aim of the Gateways team is to encourage and support public interest in the centenary of the First World War through a range of events and activities. The Centre is managed by the University of Kent in partnership with the Universities of Brighton, Greenwich, Portsmouth, Leeds and Queen Mary, London. It also has close links with organisations such as the Imperial War Museum, National Maritime Museum and the War Memorials Trust.

Gateways to the First World War has developed a series of pop-up displays focusing on key areas of First World War research, including; 

  • Theatre and the First World War,

  • The Indian Army and the First World War,

  • The story of the Royal Navy and the Merchant Navy during the war,

  • Cinema and the First World War.  

These four displays will be open to the public from Saturday 15th October to Sunday 30th October at the Droit House in Margate.
