Simon Martinez from the Basque Children of '37 Association UK, will tell the moving story of the 4000 children who came to the UK as refugees (including over 100 who came to the Manchester area) from the Spanish Civil War in 1937 after the bombing of Guernica, Bilbao and other towns.

Artist Claire Hignett will then give a tour of her exhibition.
