A 100th Anniversary
|1st April to 6th June||Louth||Museum volunteers|
The 29th of May 2020 will mark 100 years since the Louth Flood Disaster. On that fateful day a "cloud-burst" at tea-time on a Saturday afternoon resulted in a severe flash flood which claimed the lives of 23 local people (including 6 children) making over 800 people homeless and causing widespread devastation in the town.
Louth Museum, St James' Church, Louth Town Council and Spout Yard are all planning to mark this sad event in Louth's history and will be marking the Centenary of the flood with special exhibitions and events.
Louth Museum also has a permanent inter-active flood display in its Mezzanine Gallery, and it will be holding a special exhibition focusing on how the flood happened and the personal impact on the families involved. This exhibition will run throughout April and May starting on Wednesday 1st April when the museum re-opens for its 2020 season.
