This large scale outdoor exhibition will be coming to the grounds of Belfast City Hall over the summer months. 

A unique portrait of the First World War battlefields, Fields of Battle - Lands of Peace is a powerful outdoor photographic exhibition, by Michael St Maur Sheil, which tells of the healed scars of the First World War. 

It is located in public parks, streets and city centres, and depicts the story of reconciliation across the lands of the warring nations. Once places of devastating violence, we now see landscapes of great beauty, testament to peace and remembrance. With a focus on education and ideal for adults and children alike, this engaging exhibition features meticulously researched content including archive images and fascinating facts to support Michael’s contemporary battlefield images. Visited by more than four million people to date in the UK, France and as far afield as Turkey, Fields of Battle is perhaps the most viewed exhibition of the centenary period.

This event is organised by Belfast City Council.
