First World War Commemorations 2014-19

Birmingham’s cultural and academic attractions have been planning First World War commemorations. There are many exhibitions, performances and events already in place and the planning continues to ensure that Birmingham honours and remembers those that fought and died in the Great War.

Art venues, theatres, academic institutions, museums, arts centres, associations and Birmingham City Council have come together to create a rich programme of cultural events and activities to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War. Additionally, The Black Country Living Museum and The Wolverhampton Grand Theatre will also be taking part in the programme.

For details of these commemorative events, as well as essays, articles and other academic resources on the subject, please visit the Voices of War and Peace website, created and maintained by the University of Birmingham in conjunction with their partners.
