Migration Museum,
Migration Museum, Lewisham Shopping Centre,
London SE13 7HB


Wednesday 31 May 2023
Free – email frances@migrationmuseum.org to book

Curls, cornrows, or crew cut – whatever the style, share your hair stories at the Migration Museum’s Reminiscence Café.

How did you wear your hair as a child? What were your early trips to the barber’s like? What were your favourite looks for a night out on the town… or the styles you’d really rather forget?

  • Share your stories – or just come and listen – over a cuppa
  • Hear about hairdressing businesses started by migrants in our Taking Care of Business exhibition
  • Bring along any photos you may have of past hair-dos
  • Carers and friends welcome. Free refreshments provided

To book, please email: frances@migrationmuseum.org
