1 hours 30 mins

A pre-show seminar, co-organised by Gateways to the First World War, Zap Art & InSite and funded by the AHRC, Arts Council England, East Sussex Arts Partnership and Seaford and Newhaven Town Councils.

This free and open seminar brings together three historians to present their research on conscientious objectors and military tribunals in the First World War. The main aim of this event is to elicit an academic discussion about this important and historically controversial First World War heritage in advance of a free showing of Sara Clifford’s  The Tribunal. A play that explores the dliemma: Your country or your conscience?


Jenny Flood (Project Officer, Newhaven’s War, HLF funded project)

Dr Chris Kempshall (Project Officer for East Sussex County Council’s First World War Centenary Project)

The Revd. Dr Clive Barrett  (Author of Subversive Peacemakers – War Resistance 1914–1918: An Anglican Perspective, chair of the Anglican Pacifist Fellowship and the Peace Museum in Bradford)

Talks will be followed by a Q and A session.

The play will begin at 8pm in the same venue, but must be booked separately from the seminar. To book a ticket for The Tribunal see here:
