BRADFORD’s Peace Museum will host a special event to mark the closure of its exhibition, A Flawed Peace?

The exhibition, which examines the success of peace efforts after the First World War, opened last year and the closing event, on Friday, June 28 (5.30-7.30pm) will mark 100 years since the Treaty of Versailles.

Visitors can enjoy a reception with time to explore the exhibition and hear talks from museum staff alongside notable World War One historian, Dr Kathryn Hughes, who will deliver her talk 'Peace Day July 1919 and the Parade That Never Happened'.

A Flawed Peace? examines the success of peace efforts after the First World War. Supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the exhibition focussed on the heritage of peace and features a 1919 copy of the Treaty of Versailles, the peace treaty signed after the war.

Now part of The Peace Museum’s collection, the 1919 copy belonged to Bradford politician Meredith Farrah Titterington and has remained in Bradford for the last 100 years.

Over the course of the exhibition the museum held events for Remembrance Day, International Women’s Day and worked with young people from Impressions Gallery’s New Focus, as a continuation of their No Man’s Land project.

Research by New Focus into The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, informed part of the exhibition.

Shannen Johnson, Learning and Engagement Officer at The Peace Museum said: “There has been a lot going on across the museum and gallery sector to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War and it has been great to be a part of that conversation.

"We hope A Flawed Peace? has enabled people to learn not only about the history of World War One, but about international peacemaking, from a range of different perspectives.

"We’re looking forward to welcoming the community to the exhibition one last time.”
