Permanent exhibition: A House of People

After decades of extensive research, we invite you into the Talbot House Archives. This new (2020) exhibition showcases some 500 artefacts. Using state-of-the-art technology on large tablet screens, visitors are able to dig deeper into a subject or object of their interest. The open exhibition space is set in the authentic old hop store, a beautiful listed building.

The exhibition aims to tell many new Tales of Talbot House, both from the days of the Great War as well as beyond. With objects and stories linked to the founding of the Toc H charity in the, Tubby’s Pilgrimages to the battlefields, the evacuation, occupation and liberation during WW2, etc. The final chapter is by Harry Patch, both the last veteran of the Great War and the final Talbotousians.

The new temporary exhibition based on "the Pilgrim's Guide to the Ypres Salient" printed anno 1920 sets Tubby as a true pioneer of remembrance tourism. The exhibition can be visited in the Slessorium till at least September 2020. It is the work of Jan Louagie MBE, Secretary of the Talbot House Association.
