Thursday, 2nd May - Monday, 1st JulyThe Bull Dog and the Bull. Churchill and Spain exhibitionInstituto Cervantes Manchester

Following the great success of the exhibition in London and Cambridge, The Bull Dog and the Bull. Churchill and Spain visits the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester before it travels to Spain.

 

The European Union month celebration (9th May) offers a fascinating opportunity to get a perspective on Churchill’s compelling life story with a colorful exhibition of rare archive material: photographs, posters, and key documents from Spain and the UK. 

 

This exhibition, curated by British-Spanish journalist and author Jimmy Burns OBE, shows Churchill’s relationship with Spain from his days as a young soldier in Cuba through to his later years as a tourist during the 1950s. It underlines his sense of adventure and nobility, his controversial politics, and the admiration he provoked among his most loyal followers. It also provides a glimpse of key periods of the history of modern Spain and its impact on a man whose interest in people and life defied national boundaries.

Time: Monday to Friday 10.00 am – 8.00 pm
Venue: Instituto Cervantes Manchester, 326-330 Deansgate, Campfield Avenue Arcade, Manchester M3 4FN (street map)
