    Special Events
    Priestley’s Wars: The untold story of J B Priestley’s role at the centre of British twentieth century history
    Sunday 23 November 3.00pm
    Join author and historian Neil Hanson in conversation with Tom Priestley talking about his unique perspective on the life and work of his father, J B Priestley. Looking at his journey from enthusiastic soldier in the First World War to passionate opponent to nuclear war and cofounder of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, this is an exclusive chance to discover the remarkable story of one of the literary giants of the twentieth century and his role in the military conflict and social change that defined an era.

    Actors Timothy West and Ken Cranham will read Priestley’s previously unpublished letters from the First World War battlefields which vividly evoke the full horrors of trench warfare and mark the start of a transformation that would ultimately make Priestley one of the most influential voices for peace and disarmament.

    Tickets: £7, Concessions £5 (includes Members of CND and the Priestley Society)
