The Art Of War Exhibition in Hackney

Hackney Poster

Hackney Museum is presenting an exhibition called The Art Of War: Posters and Propaganda from the First World War from 23rd February – 28th May 2016. The opening times and address of the museum are given on the flyer above.

The British Music Hall Society has contributed to this exhibition by loaning the museum a costume of Vesta Tilley from the society’s archive. Vesta was a music hall star who helped recruit many men to the armed services during WW1. The Society has also supplied sheet music of one or two of Vesta’s songs together with several postcard illustrations of the music hall star.
