In the afternoon, a Peace Walk around the city centre stopped off at Peace Hub, before meeting Birmingham’s Lord Mayor and investigating war poetry from the archives of the Library of Birmingham.

Peace Hub is a place for community activists and members of the public interested in peace and justice to come together at events like this.  So if you ‘re interested in connect ing with like-minded groups please get in touch .
