Migration Museum Film Club


We are launching a new Migration Museum Film Club at the Migration Museum at The Workshop.

We will be screening a series of films that shed light on different aspects of Britain’s migration story. We have selected these films either because of their relevance to our current exhibition, No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain, or because they explore more general issues of immigration and emigration.

Where possible, film screenings will be accompanied by a short interview and discussion with one of the
people involved in the making of the film – director, producer, actor or writer. Our provisional screening schedule is below, with more films and screenings to be announced in due course.

These screenings will be ticketed events – see the event pages for each screening below to book tickets via Eventbrite. Prices will vary depending on the film, but will not exceed £8.50 (excluding Eventbrite booking fee). Drinks and nibbles will be available in return for a small donation

We look forward to seeing you at a Film Club screening soon!
