Upcoming Grunwick40 events - exhibition, film, conference

From Grunwick40

Hi everyone
We’re really excited. There's just over a week to go until the opening of ‘We are the lions: an exhibition commemorating the Grunwick strike 1976-78’ – and it’s going to be amazing.
This exhibition wouldn’t have happened without your support. So we hope you’ll come and visit it at Brent Museum & Archives in Willesden, where it will run from October 19th 2016 to March 26th 2017. Opening times and details are here.
You’ll get a chance to explore archive images and records of the strike, immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the 70s and have some fun creating your own responses to Grunwick in the creative area (kids welcome too!). We also have the original Grunwick Strike Committee banner on display with its highly unusual design – see if you can spot its influence throughout the look of the exhibition.
And don’t forget, if you like what you see, we’re also offering a free travelling exhibition to schools and community groups. Drop us an email at to book it for a venue near you.
As if all this isn’t enough, November will also see us run two huge Grunwick events:
They’re both free and open to all, which means they’ll fill up fast – so make sure you don’t miss out.
Now we’re working to get the formal permissions sorted so that we can get our amazing community murals out into the streets of Brent – it’s taking a little longer than planned but don’t worry, you’ll be the first to hear about the great unveiling. 
See you at a Grunwick-themed event soon!

The team at Grunwick 40.
Grunwick 40 partner organisations are Brent Trades Council, Willesden Green Town Team and Brent Museum and Archive
