Bristol 2014 was an extensive programme of activity marking the centenary of the start of the First World War and looking at other conflicts that have had an impact on the city over the last century.

Although the Bristol 2014 website is no longer updated, the Facebook page is kept up to date as some of the Bristol 2014 partners – including the Festival of Ideas – are continuing to run events on the theme of the First World War until 2018.
