Men Behind the Glass is a project that was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund which pays tribute to those Campbell men and boys lost in The Great War, their families and friends and to those who fought and survived. Over 100 photographs have been embedded in the wood panelled walls of the College’s Central Hall for decades and this project witnessed the preservation of these images thanks to the Public Record Office NI (PRONI). In addition to preserving and digitising all these images this project opened up the College archives, working in partnership with the community groups, schools and organisations all over Ireland, to tell the stories of these boys and men; how they lived as well as how they died. An exhibition was created, to tell the stories of the contrubtion our Campbell Community made to The Great War. 

It has been some time since our exhibit Men Behind The Glass has been on display. Thanks to a connection with Andrew Heasley (8647) we are delighted that two new opportunities have arisen within our local community for the exhibit to be on view to the public.  Andrew  liasied with The Somme Museum, and thansk to his connection the Men Behind The Glass Exhibit will be on display at Craigavon House as part of the Europen Heritage Open Day (EHOD) event.

More than 200 historic buildings and landmarks will open in Northern Ireland this September, offering free entry with many activities for you to enjoy as part of Northern Ireland's contribution to the European Heritage Days. There is a packed programme of virtual and open door in-person events and activities ranging from guided tours, talks, lectures, walks and brand new places to visit.

Craigavon House is the home of former First Prime Minister Sir James Craig and is rarely open to the public so we are delighted to be able to exhibit in this historically significant property.  Craigavon House will be open on Saturday, 10th September from 10.00-16.00 More details can be found on the  EHOD 2022 website.


We will back with more information later in the autumn regarding an additional viewing opportunity at Strand Cinema in November.
