Military memorabilia sought for TV roadshow

by timpickstone on 9 October, 2018

ITV’s Granada Reports WW1 Roadshow will be at Bury Market at 9am on Wednesday 17th October.

To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1, Granada Reports reporter Paul Crone, a camera crew and a team of historical experts will be on hand as part of a special show to be televised on Granada Reports. The team wants anyone with photos and medals of relatives or loved ones who fought, died or survived from 1914 to 1918 to come down to the market with their mementos and stories.

Filming for the road show will take place in the open section of the market where special gazebos will be in place.
