This exhibition has been extended until Sunday 9 September 2018. 

The EU referendum result and ongoing Brexit negotiations have sparked debate about Britain’s relationship with the world and uncertainty about migration to and from Britain.

But Brexit is far from the first pivotal moment in this country’s migration story. This exhibition explores seven such turning points. Some brought people together, others moved people apart; all had a profound effect on individuals who lived through them – and on the country as a whole.

These seven moments are not the only ones we could have chosen, nor are we using them to trace the entire history of migration to and from Britain.

We present these moments as starting points for you to explore themes about migration. We want to encourage conversations and hear your stories.

What’s your migration moment?
