Time 13:30 - 15:30

Duration 2 hours

Cost Free. Donations to the museum gratefully received.

Come along to the Labour History Archive & Study Centre to find out about more about the experience of refugees in Britain over the last 100 years.   As part of our Refugee Week celebrations, come along to this drop in session and browse through material relating to refugees from World War I to the Spanish Civil War and Chilean Solidarity Campaigns.

During the month of June, the Labour History Archive & Study Centre will be displaying a sample of some of the material from our archive related to refugees that have come to Britain over the last 100 years.  The archive is open Monday to Friday from 10.00am to 5.00pm, with a lunchtime closure from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.  The archive is closed at weekends and public holidays.

Refugee Week is a UK-wide programme of arts, cultural and educational events and activities that celebrates the contribution of refugees to the UK and promotes better understanding of why people seek sanctuary.
