A number of special events have been taking place in the city over the past few months to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the expulsion of Ugandan Asians.

 

The Leicester Arts and Museum Service, in partnership with Navrang, organised a temporary exhibition at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery titled ‘From Kampala to Leicester’, which has since found a permanent new home at the Newark Houses Museum.

 

There were also a number of different talks taking place at various venues from July right through to October, in addition to film screenings and dance workshops.
