Special Opening: Sat 28 June – Armed Forces Day and WWI Centenary event

The Peace Museum will be observing Armed Forces Day and the WWI centenary on Saturday 28 June. From 11am, The Peace Museum will have stall in City Park as part of Bradford Council’s commemorative event. Come find us and learn all about red, white and purple poppies; Bradford Pals; Bradford’s very own war horse ‘Spare Parts’; The Peace Museum’s ‘Choices’ and ‘Stories in Stone’ projects. Families can even make their own poppies. Which colour poppy will you make? The Museum will be open from 11am – 5pm. Visitors can explore the new WWI Choices gallery. Discover the stories of those who chose to fight, those who chose to object (Conscientious Objectors) and their legacies, told through museum artefacts. Featured in this gallery are the ‘Prisoner of Conscience’ sculptures; personal items of Harry Roberts, a Bradford Pal; The Conchie painting and much more.
