2019 is a big year: the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of WW2 and the consequent ‘refugee crisis’ in continental Europe and the 20th anniversary of Salusbury World opening its doors, at the time of a previous iteration of a ‘refugee crisis’ in Europe. Find out more here.
One way of getting involved in Refugee Week with Salusbury World is attending our film screening with the Lexi Cinema on World Refugee Day (20th June).
