The history of British conflict isn't just about war – sometimes it's about peace.
This March, the Imperial War Museum is inviting history lovers big and small to take a journey from the First World War to the present day, exploring how peace movements influenced perceptions of conflict. This is a major exhibition, teaching families about the importance of peace (a helpful lesson in 2017, we fear).
From conscientious objectors to peace camps and modern-day marches, Fighting for Peace tells the stories of passionate people over the past 100 years and the struggles they have endured for the anti-war cause.
More than 300 objects, including paintings, literature, posters, placards, banners, badges and music reveal the breadth of creativity of anti-war protest movements, reflecting the cultural mood of each era.
This is a dramatic and sometimes frightening introduction to history – so think hard about which family members you might want to take.
