Bradford: Bruce Kent painting donated to Peace Museum

A painting of peace activist Bruce Kent is to go on show in the Bradford Peace Museum. It was donated by artist Luke Teague to commemorate his subject's ninetieth birthday in June.

Bruce Kent is a well-known figure in the peace movement in Britain. A former general secretary of CND, he is currently a vice-president of CND, the Movement for the Abolition of War (MAW) and Pax Christi. He is an outspoken opponent of nuclear weapons and the British Government's plan to spend more than £200 million on building and maintaining another generation of nuclear weapons to replace Britain's current Trident system.

The Peace Museum in Bradford explores the history and the often untold stories of peace, peacemakers, social reform and peace movements. It occupies three galleries in one of Bradford's many fine Victorian buildings. It is unique in that it is the only accredited museum of its kind in the UK. The museum is a national resource that educates and inspires people for peace, using a unique collection of artefacts and stories.
