A new exhibition at Arundells in Salisbury tells the story of Britain’s rollercoaster journey into the European Economic Community (EEC).
Former Prime Minister Edward Heath, who lived at Arundells, played a pivotal role in Britain’s entry talks into Europe.
‘Britain’s Long Road into Europe’ which runs until November 1, relates Britain’s complex relationship with Europe, from entry talks in the 1960s to today’s Brexit negotiations.
The exhibition runs until November 1 and includes cartoons by some of the greatest political cartoonists, news and campaign materials, and secret papers.
Lord Hunt of Wirral, Chairman of the Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation, commented: “The exhibits provide valuable background and context to Britain’s sometimes strained relationship with Europe and to the negotiations underway as the country prepares to leave the European Union.”
