    To remember with understanding should be at the heart of any commemorative consideration of such a centenary as the outbreak of the First World War. In such a spirit has an exceptionally imaginative conference been prepared for July 2014 at Weetwood Hall, Leeds. It is designed to be the first in a series. Outstanding speakers, challenging topics of wide appeal, fascinating excursions, related activities and high class accommodation, offer a treat for anyone with an unfulfilled appetite for insight into the limitless significance of the years of the First World War.

  2. Sir Ian Kershaw says:

    I hope that this well-planned conference is a great success. It deserves to be. Its distinguished speakers and imaginatively arranged programme on Britain’s involvement in the First World War offer new perspectives which are certain to interest all who want to learn more about ‘the seminal catastrophe of the 20th century’

    Good Luck with your venture.
