Exhibition: Moved by Conflict - Bristol and the First World War: lives changed forever at M Shed

The First World War had a profound effect on Bristol and its people. Thousands of troops and wounded soldiers came and left the city. Men volunteered. Some refused to fight. Women took on new roles. Refugees arrived. Old industries thrived, new ones started.

Moved by Conflict intimately tells Bristol’s story, highlighting how individual lives and communities were changed forever through video, interactive displays and hundreds of original objects, archive film and documents – some never seen before.

Become absorbed as you are taken on a journey by one of the six fictional characters created by Melly Still, an Associate Director with Bristol Old Vic. Join them as they tell you their story and offer a direct insight into the effects of war, intertwining both fact and fiction.

Tickets: Adults £3.95 Concessions £2.95 and under 16s free. Visitors will be able to able to come back and see the exhibition again for free by keeping hold of their original ticket.
Free entry days on Wed 17 Dec, Wed 14 Jan and Wed 11 Feb.

Developed by Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives, Moved by Conflict marks the centenary of the First World War and forms a major part of the Bristol 2014 programme.

War Horse at The Bristol Hippodrome

The National Theatre brings its sell-out production of War Horse, co-directed by Bristol’s Tom Morris and Marianne Elliot to The Bristol Hippodrome.

War Horse is the powerful story of a young boy called Albert and his beloved horse, Joey, who has been requisitioned to fight for the British in World War I. Caught in enemy crossfire, Joey ends up serving on both sides during the war before landing in No Man’s Land, while Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, War Horse features ground-breaking puppetry work by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, which brings breathing and galloping horses to life on stage.
