Event Details

Visitors will have the opportunity to help tell the stories and recover the histories of people in the photos. Also showing will be the latest film in the ‘Gloucester Firsts’  series “The First Interracial Marriage”, created by Rider Shafique with Tarsier Creative.

Attendance is free and no need to book, but please call at least an hour ahead of your visit so that we can ensure someone will be there to greet you. Group bookings (10+) are welcome but please call to arrange at least 2hrs in advance. Contact number – 07899727027.
