The Refugee’s Gift

Event type:
Location: St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 4JJ

An exhibition of photographs by Bill Knight for the Refugee Council shows refugees and the contribution they make to life in the UK. Here are people who have escaped from persecution and who have benefited from our long tradition of offering asylum. They may have arrived recently from conflicts in Syria, Eritrea, or Somalia, or sought safety decades ago from Hitler’s Germany. Men and women, young and old, rich and poor, most arrived with few material possessions – but they all came with an unstoppable determination to make a new life.
