Liberty80, the Anniversary Exhibition opens in London

An exhibition charting Liberty’s history opens in London on Tuesday 4 February as the human rights group prepares to celebrate its 80th birthday. Liberty80 – The Anniversary Exhibition is being held at St-Martin-in-the-Fields church – the very spot Liberty’s founders first met back in 1934.

Liberty80 – The Anniversary Exhibition celebrates eight decades of Liberty holding the powerful to account, showing battles fought and won for freedom, fairness, justice and equality – with some striking parallels between 1934 and the present day. Historic items on display range from a copy of the original Manchester Guardian letter announcing NCCL’s formation in 1934 to a whiteboard depicting Labour’s backbench rebellion on 42-day pre-charge detention during Liberty’s victorious Charge or Release campaign in 2008. There are also pieces from Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing OBE, Dame Vivienne Westwood DBE and photographer Mary McCartney.

Read the rest on Liberty’s website.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Tuesday, 4 February until Saturday, 1 March in the beautiful Gallery in the Crypt at St-Martin-in-the-Fields.
