Migration Stories North West – Touring Exhibition

5th July @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Migration Stories North West (2021-24) is a National Lottery Heritage Fund project mapping histories of migration in and out of the North West of England from the Roman period to the present day. The project is led by five North West partners and supported by historians and heritage organisations from around the region and beyond.

This exhibition tells stories of individual women, men and children who have migrated in and out of the North West from other parts of the British Isles and other parts of the world as a result of conflict, colonialism and trade, as well as in search of work, educational opportunities or a better life. Together, the stories reveal the region’s long history of migration and ways in which it has shaped and continues to shape our social landscape.

Migration Stories NW exhibition will be held in Chester Town Hall across the four days of the festival 11am-4pm, no need to book, just drop in and visit!
