Annual Peace Lecture Thursday 5th October 2017 - A performance by Michael Mears

September 13, 2017

This year’s Peace Lecture will be held in the Fothergill Theatre on Thursday 5th October at 7.00pm,  in the form of a play ‘This Evil Thing’. The play premiered last year at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and gives a compelling, shocking, and inspiring story about the First World War. It is written by the playwright and actor Michael Mears, and he will perform the play himself. Michael takes the part of Bert Brocklesby, a World War I conscientious objector from South Yorkshire, who sent both his daughters to Ackworth School.  Bert’s granddaughter Jill Gibbon will be attending on the evening and will speak about the play after the performance.
