Let’s Chat is a new project to get the public’s input and opinion on plans for the future of the museum’s exhibitions, events and displays. The project will open with River of Tea: From Bengal to Britain, an exhibition of photographs by Tim Smith. The photographs explore how the early tea trade sparked the migration of people from Bengal to Britain. More than 500,000 British-Bangladeshis now live in Britain, with over 90% of Sylheti origin- a district in northern Bangladesh that was once part of Assam, the first tea growing region in British India. The photographs will be displayed alongside further content which tell this story, created in partnership with communities in Bradford.
