Bristol Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
Shout about Peace exhibition
Saturday 12th November – Friday 25th November
11 – 18 year olds in Bristol have been encouraged to enter an art, film and writing competition to shout about peace.
For the writing competition, entrants were asked to consider a world without nuclear weapons, to tell the world how they feel about nuclear weapons and what they think should be done with them.
In the art competition, entrants were asked to show us what they would like to tell the world about nuclear weapons.
This competition aims to encourage young people to find out more about the history of atomic weapons, the campaigns for nuclear disarmament, and the current political issue of Trident renewal
The art work and writing entries will exhibit in the New Room.

The chapel itself is on the ground floor (where there is also a shop) and is accessible from either the Broadmead or Horsefair courtyards. Upstairs, are the Preachers’ Rooms where the MLA accredited museum is located. This contains a unique collection of papers and artifacts and tells the story of John and Charles Wesley and their life and work in Bristol.
