The National Portrait Gallery is commemorating the centenary of the First World War with a four-year programme of exhibitions, displays, public events and learning projects.

Two current displays feature a range of portraits from the Gallery Collection to highlight significant aspects of the conflict and of the period. Keep the Home Fires Burning celebrates the popular music hall stars of the day, while the anniversary of the suffragette protests is marked by Suffragettes: Deeds not Words.

Part of the national First World War Centenary partnership.
