Join us for a programme that explores the contribution of Commonwealth forces in the British army. The programme aims to strengthen feelings of British identity and the confidence of being British, improve citizenship, a sense of belonging and ultimately improve community relations.

The programme also aims to counter glamorisation of war and guns. The Shared Histories event is being held on Thursday 16th November 2017, 2pm-4.30pm in the Council Chamber in partnership with The National Sikh Museum

Councillor Asaf Afzal, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Public Protection, said:

We must tackle the rise in racial and religiously motivated hate crimes and the evidence of extremist voices in our communities. This is a great way to remember the sacrifices made and reflect on what has happened.

The Shared Histories event allows us to bring people in the community closer together and create a real sense of belonging. It’s our turn now to do our bit 100 years later.”
