The Refugees who made the Festival of Britain
5 May 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Wednesday 5 May at 6pm, to mark the seventieth anniversary of the Festival of Britain, design historian Harriet Atkinson, author of The Festival of Britain: A Land and Its People (2012) and contributor to Insiders/Outsiders; Refugees from Nazi Europe and their Contribution to British Visual Culture (2019), will give a talk about the disproportionately and perhaps surprisingly large contribution made by former refugees from Nazi Europe to that landmark cultural event of 1951.
