Following the devastating bombing of Guernica in 1937, there was such outrage in Britain that the Government reluctantly agreed to allow one boatload of refugee children and their accompanying adults to enter the country.

This guest exhibition from BCA’37 UK, the Association for the UK Basque Children, tells the story of the children who came to colonies in Manchester, Salford, Bolton and other cities in the North West.

There will be a free talk by Simon Martinez alongside the exhibition on Wednesday 23 October at 2pm - details here.

Exhibitions are open Wednesdays to Fridays 1-5pm, and the first Saturday of the month 10am-4pm.  there is a launch event for the exhibition at 6pm on Wednesday 25 September - all welcome.
