In Search of the Basque Children in Salford and Eccles

Sunday 18 June to Sunday 24 September 2017

Salford based artist Claire Hignett has been researching a group of Basque children evacuated from the Spanish Civil War who came to Salford and Eccles in 1937. 

Finding stories in old newspapers and talking to people who still remember them, she creates this exhibition to tell this hidden story.
