Surrey Heath Bough Council announce, Take Ten – an exhibition celebrating the rich cultural make-up of the Surrey Heath area. [Click on image to expand]

The upcoming exhibition at Surrey Heath Museum features 10 people who originate from different countries and have made Surrey Heath their home. Our area has long attracted people to the area for work and family reasons, many of whom have come from abroad.

Settling into a different culture, climate and community is difficult.  However, the people featured have well and truly made the area their home.  The countries covered are Switzerland, Spain, Japan, France, India, Nepal, Barbados, New Zealand and Portugal.  Not forgetting two people who come from other areas in the UK and have settled here!

We look into where people grew up, why they moved here, what they miss and how the area has become their home. The exhibition features objects from their country, food, craft and cultural differences.  It is a true celebration of the area’s rich cultural make-up.

We are holding a special viewing on Saturday 24 May for all those who have taken part.  Members of the press are welcome to attend.

The exhibition runs from 20 May until 2 September 2017.  For more info email museum@surreyheath.gov.uk/ Gillian.Barnes-riding@surreyheath.gov.uk
