Moved by Conflict

This exhibition has now finished.

The First World War had a profound effect on Bristol and its people. Through hundreds of original objects and archives Moved by Conflict explored the physical, social and personal changes made by war.

In association with Bristol Old Vic, people’s stories revealed how local lives have been altered by the turmoil of war. This moving and informative exhibition took you from Bristol in the early 1900s and its position in the British Empire, through 1914–1918, to people in the city today affected by current global conflicts.
