An artist has organised a special Remembrance Sunday exhibition in aid of the Royal British Legion.
Lesley Miller and fellow artists will be displaying works inspired by the two world wars at the South Street on the Square Gallery, in Lower Square, Brentford .
There will also be live music from Charlie Costin at the event, on Sunday, November 8, from 12pm-4pm, and the chance for people to share their stories and memorabilia from conflicts past and present.
As well as raising money for the Royal British Legion to help service men and women, Ms Miller hopes the gathering will give people the chance to reflect in a very different environment to the traditional memorial ceremonies around war memorials.
"The aim of the exhibition is provide a space for the community to get together, share their stories and memorabilia and reflect" she said.
"I'd really like to hear from anybody that might have things that they might let us exhibit or who knows anybody that might be interested in reading a poem."
Anyone is welcome to attend the free event, where Ms Miller will be collecting for the RBL.
She said she got the idea after being overwhelmed by the reaction on Facebook to a sombre painting of hers showing war planes in the grey skies above a field of poppies.
The painting got more than 1,500 likes and she is selling prints of it to raise money for her brother, who is running the London Marathon next year in aid of the RBL.
