Exhibition

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to come here from Nepal?

Working closely with the Nepalese Women’s Society, we are pleased to present this fascinating exhibition that helps answer that question. Explore objects picked by the ladies of the Society ranging from tickets to a concert in Wembley Stadium to water vessels that have a personal story attached. Some items bring back memories of Nepal and others of their first years living here.

For those who have no knowledge of Nepal, there is information on the country, from Mount Everest and the beautiful lakes to the government, religion and national dress.  You can also find out what the Nepalese Women’s Society have been up to in the last 10 years.

This exhibition is a small taster of a much larger exhibition ‘Do You See What I See?’, 14 March to 21 June 2020 which will explore in more detail the experiences of the Nepalese society in Britain.
