From striking glass sculptures to simple stone cairns, there are more than 360 memorials at the National Memorial Arboretum, for both military and civilian associations, all with fascinating stories and symbolism waiting to be discovered. Between the 25 December and the 5 January you can discover more about just some of these memorials at our free daily 12 Days of Christmas Memorial Talks.

Other talks will be taking place throughout the day. Please see here for more details.Read more
