Asian Roots in Redbridge

Redbridge Museum has opened an exhibition exploring the history of South Asian life in Redbridge, from the borough’s historic links to the East India Company and the Raj, to stories of migration in the 20th Century and today’s vibrant communities.

Visit the exhibition on the first floor of Redbridge Central Library during opening hours until 27 August.

Watch a preview of the exhibition below.

India – Africa – Redbridge

In 2005, Redbridge Museum interviewed local Asian people about leaving East Africa and moving to the UK, as part of an exhibition about the history of East African Asians in Redbridge. 

This two-part film explores people’s experiences of life in Africa and life in the UK. 


Until 27 August
