Hunt out your military memorabilia for TV roadshow

ITV’s Granada Reports WW1 Roadshow will be rolling up at Bury’s famous market from 9am on Wednesday 17th October.

To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1, Granada Reports reporter Paul Crone, a camera crew and a team of historical experts will be on hand as part of a special show to be televised on Granada Reports.

The team wants anyone with photos and medals of relatives or loved ones who fought, died or survived from 1914 to 1918 to come down to the market with their mementos and stories.

Andrew Heyes, Bury Markets manager said:“We are delighted to welcome Granada Reports to the market and to support this road show.

“Bury has a great military tradition and this is a fantastic opportunity for us to recognise the contribution made by those who fought on our behalf a hundred years ago.

“And don’t worry if you haven’t got exact information, we will have specialists Sarah Stevenson and Phil Mather with us from the nearby Fusilier Museum to help solve any 100-year-old mysteries.”

ITV’s Paul Crone said, ‘We are so excited to come to Bury Market and meet people whose relatives from our region fought so bravely in France, Belgium and beyond.

“We are so grateful to Andrew Heyes and his team for helping us with our one-off roadshow. We’ve no idea how many people will come along, or the stories they may have…but that’s half the excitement of it all!”

Filming for the road show will take place in the open section of the market where special gazebos will be in place.
