We are the Lions launches!

Our exhibition launched with a private view on Tuesday 18 October – and we hope everyone agreed it was a fitting tribute to the lions of Grunwick.

We were honoured to welcome a number of former strikers and their families to explore the new Grunwick 40 collection, including audio, video and artwork commemorating the strike.

In an inspirational and emotional evening, we heard from Grunwick 40 chair Sujata Aurora, Curator Poulomi Desai, Brent Heritage manager Libby Strudwick, and many of the strikers present.

We we were also lucky to have the support of over 100 other attendees, including a number of well known figures, such as Meera Syal, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Jack Dromey MP and Dawn Butler MP.

The launch was covered in local and national media (oh, and here… and here..), and has already raised a lot of interest in the exhibition.

The exhibition is open until 26 March 2017 at the Brent Museum & Archives, The Library at Willesden Green, 95 High Road, London NW10 2SF. (8 mins walk from Willesden Green station, click here for map)

Opening times: Mon-Fri: 9am-8pm, Sat-Sun: 10am-5pm.
