The Peace & Anti-War Movement on the eve of the First World War - lessons for today. Recognising the impact that the national commemoration of the First World War will have, the Peace History Conference looks at the peace and anti war movements and individual campaigners who attempted to change public perceptions and government policy, before and during WW1 and the following century. The conference includes a showing of the new film, 'Benjamin Britten - Peace and Conflict', and features talks on Isabella Ford, the Northern Friends Peace Board Centenary, The View of Two Communities on the Eve of the First World War in Germany and England, and a panel Q&A discussion. Plus stalls, refreshments, creche and Manchester Peace & Justice Trail guided walk.
