A lottery funded website documenting Luton and its people during World War I is being officially launched on Friday.

The website, launched by Luton Culture, will become an interactive archive which helps people upload and discover not just the history of Luton during World War I but also the experiences of current Lutonians’ family members, whether they lived or served in Luton or elsewhere in the world.

From Friday to Monday The Mall will be hosting a mini WWI exhibition and collecting day in Central Square. If anyone has anything World War I related they can bring it along. Project volunteers will photograph or scan it and add it to the site. Find out more at
