Saturday 19 November | 11:00–17:00
The inter-war period was a fraught one and London became a place of refuge. Explore stories of children who migrated to East London from 1930 to the present day through short films, talks with child migrants and readings. Hear about Linh, who escaped from Vietnam by boat with her father; Maurice, who owes his life to a daily meal provided by the Red Cross during the Biafran War; and Argun, who rescued his family album from his bombed-out house in Cyprus. This event will feature a singing workshop and musical performances by the Helen Bamber Foundation’s Woven Gold Choir, Trad Academy and One Jah.
