Migration Museum Walking Trail – John and Vivian’s Story at Newham Bookshop

About this record

Newham Bookshop began as an education charity in 1978 after local parents who were concerned about the low expectations for their children’s education grouped together to start the charity and support one another. The bookshop followed shortly after, to help promote adult education and illiteracy. It has long served Newham’s diverse community. This is the first stop on the Migration Museum’s Newham Heritage Month self-guided mini trail.

Pick up free guide from Newham Bookshop’s front desk throughout May, 10am – 5pm May Tuesday – Sunday
