Zeppelin Raid 100 Year Commemoration

On the 16th January 2016 a number of events were held in Loughborough to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the deadly raid on the town. The centrepiece of the day was the unveiling of a large bronze plaque at the site of The Rushes bomb in the centre of the town. The plaque was designed by artist Paul Gent and Natalie Chabaud in a joint project between the Carillon Tower War Memorial Museum and Charnwood Arts. During the day a guided walk took participants through a re-enacted tour of the sites of the bombing followed by a number of evening events including the unveiling of the plaque at the time that The Rushes bomb was dropped.
