Migration Museum's New Exhibition 'No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain'

Migration Museum’s New Exhibition ‘No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain’

Migration Museum at The Workshop

Until 25 February 2018 | 11am– 5pm (Wed-Sun, late opening last Thurs of each month) | FREE

A timely (to say the least!) exhibition exploring seven pivotal moments in the history of migration into Britain.

That pesky Brexit lark has certainly sparked debate about Britain’s relationship with the world, and particularly the divisive issue of migration.

But if you think that the Eu Referendum and the ongoing fallout is the first pivotal migration moment in Britain’s history, think again! The latest exhibition at The Migration Museum, currently housed at The Workshop near Lambeth Palace, explores seven previous ‘turning points’ which provide a broader, necessary context to the current debate.

As well as providing a number of important history lessons, the exhibition also aims to encourage conversations and elicit stories from visitors – we all have a migration moment, what’s yours?

To Do List got a sneak preview and took a few obligatory Instagram pics – but this is definitely an exhibition to be experienced ‘real world’, so jump on the next bus down to The Workshop and delve into this fascinating – and easy on the eye – history of migration.

The Migration Museum

The Migration Museum is a unique showcase for stories of movement to and from Britain, currently making its home in The Workshop, an arts and community space near Lambeth Palace.

The Migration Museum Project aims to find a long-term, permanent home for the museum beyond February 2018 – until then, The Workshop is an ideal location for this vitally important project which has staged a series of events, exhibitions and education workshops across the UK since 2013.
