Living Knowledge Network: Chinese and British exhibition

  • During regular opening hours from Saturday 18 February until Saturday 18 March 2023

Chinese communities have been calling the UK home for much longer than many realise. Tracing their heritage back to regions in East and South-East Asia, they have established a rich and diverse culture across the UK.

In a new free display from the British Library, we reflect on this long history through photographs, manuscripts and interviews with those who have lived through it.

Join us to celebrate the history and lasting legacy of this vibrant community, and to understand what it really means to be Chinese and British.
