'Oh! What a lovely war-resistance!'

'Oh! What a lovely war-resistance!'

Details

Music in Opposition to War, 1914-1918.

Each generation of peace campaigners provides the resources to strengthen the next generation. Join us at The Peace Museum and discover how peace campaigners in the Nineteenth Century produced the songs which encouraged those who opposed the First World War. Their words even inspired Martin Luther King 50 years later. Those generations of war-resisters can inspire us today.

This talk will be looking at the poems, hymns and songs that inspired conscientious objectors, drawing from three sources: personal diaries, graffiti from the prison cells of Richmond Castle, and especially from an item in the collection of The Peace Museum, “The Conscientious Objector’s Song Book”, 1916. It will be an illustrated talk, including sound recordings, and even the opportunity to join in!

This is a FREE event, but donations are welcome. Booking is required. Please email info@peacemuseum.org.uk to secure your place.
