To coincide with the conclusion of the Battle of the Somme it was marked by an exhibition and event organised by the Brington History Society. This was over three days starting at 11am on 11th November with the posting of short biographies on the railings surrounding the War Memorial followed by a visit by the Brington School children who placed a cross at the foot of the war memorial for every man from the villages of Little & Great Brington and Nobottle that lost their lives in WW1. The event was officially opened by the 9th Earl Spencer at an evening reception in the Reading Room.

Below is a list of the events and links to the exhibition content and photographs.
