Exhibition – You’ve Been Framed

An exhibition revealing Staffordshire Yeomanry history in framed photographs, paintings, textiles and manuscripts.

Like most museums, there is not enough room to display every item or object within our permanent gallery space. At the Ancient High House we hold some of our collections safely in storage. This temporary exhibition provides an opportunity for the public to see our ‘framed’ treasures for the first time.

This framed collection of photographs, paintings, illustration, textiles and manuscripts commemorate the raising of the regiment in the 18th century, to the Boer War, World War I and World War II Campaigns.
