Rare chance to visit this magical historic building, open every day 13-20 June from 12-7pm to celebrate Refugee Week, and the stories of the thousands of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers whose contributions have shaped Spitalfields, London and British society.
'One of the most charismatic buildings in our city – it tells the tale of arrival, of moving in and moving on’
Robert Elms, BBC London
Don’t miss the only weekday openings this year of the ‘hauntingly beautiful’ SUITCASES AND SANCTUARY made by today’s children, and take a wry look at asylum in Britain today through LEAVE TO REMAIN, made by three contemporary artists in exile.
