Members of the Birmingham Pals First World War military re-enactment group are visiting Stafford’s Ancient High House on Saturday to talk to visitors about life and times in the army during the Great War.

The event, which runs from 10am to 4pm on August 2, gives visitors the chance to meet a "recruitment officer", learn how soldiers joined the forces and see the uniform and equipment at first hand. Children can also take part in workshops recreating the ration books used during the war.

The Ancient High House is hosting a Stafford and the Great War exhibition until October 18, highlighting the lives of local people on the home front and in the armed forces.

Admission to the exhibition and re-enactment is free. There is a £2 charge for the workshops.
