Moved by Conflict

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

In association with Bristol Old Vic, people’s stories reveal how local lives have been altered by the turmoil of war. This moving and informative exhibition will take 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.

Exhibition aimed at adults and children aged 10+

Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives is a partner in Bristol 2014, an extensive programme of activity marking the centenary of the start of the First World War in the City. See Bristol2014.com

Presented in partnership with Bristol Cultural Development Partnership. Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England.
