We are pleased to announce that The Peace Museum has received a National Lottery grant of £4900 for a project, A Flawed Peace?, at the museum in Bradford City Centre. Awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund’s First World War then and now programme, and made possible by National Lottery players, the project aims to explore the post-war peace after the First World War. The grant will fund an exhibition which will feature a 1919 copy of the Treaty of Versailles, the peace treaty signed after the war, that belonged to a Bradford politician.
The exhibition will open at The Peace Museum on Thursday 1st November and run until Friday 28th June 2019, which will mark 100 years since the Treaty of Versailles was signed.
