GETTING BETTER AT BURGAGE

A Nottinghamshire house that once served as home for Lord Byron is recreating its time as a hospital for soldiers from World War I.

About 70 men at a time were treated at Burgage Manor in Southwell, sent from acute hospitals in Leicester and Lincoln.

The weekend will see volunteers in period clothing along with contemporary music and displays of memorabilia.

Organisers said they wanted to commemorate not just the solders but also the work of nurses and doctors.
