Armistice & After Peace

Armistice & After Peace


On Armistice Day 1918, local girl Madge Howdill celebrated the end of the war by creating a flag and parading it in the city. 100 years on we honour the sacrifices made during wartime and the hope for a peaceful future, in a new installation of symbols of peace, created by the people of Leeds.

See this 1918 Armistice Flag on display. Witness symbols of peace covering the giant map of Leeds in the Brodrick Hall. Alongside the work of other groups, inspired by the Armistice banner, who worked with textile artist Agnis Smallwood to create their own collaborative works, inspired by the question “What does peace mean to you?”

Join us to reflect on 100 years of war and peace in Leeds and beyond, with music from the newly commissioned _Penthos_ sung by St Peter’s Singers. This installation forms part of Leeds Museums & Galleries ‘Armistice & After’ season of events.
