'Breaking the Chains', a ground-breaking exhibition about Britain and the slave trade, opens Spring 2007 in Bristol, South West England. Planned to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade the £1 million Heritage Lottery-funded exhibition will act as the centrepiece of the former major slave-trading port's commemoration programme. 'Breaking the Chains' will occupy an entire floor of the city's British Empire & Commonwealth Museum and has been developed in partnership with Bristol City Council's Museums, Galleries and Archives' service. Entry is included with normal Museum admission. See www.empiremuseum.co.uk for details.
