Sharon Cross is the curator of the Surrey Heath Museum, and is a source of much knowledge about Surrey Heath. Her talk on Our Home Front is at the Camberley Theatre: 3.30pm – 4.30pm on Friday 20th May.

Residents look forward to Sharon’s annual museum exhibitions of Surrey Heath life, such as West End. The Museum hosts exhibitions, such as that of the life of local naturalist George Lodge. A small collection of the images on the Home Front, from the Museum collection, will be on display in the Camberley Theatre foyer.
