New Year's Eve party in the 1960s (Polish community in South London). Archive Photo. Poles in South London Collection.

An exhibition exploring the experiences and stories of Poles who settled in South London shortly after World War II, reflecting on the Polish identity, culture, and heritage in London through the decades.

Organised by community development charity Stockwell Partnership, this exhibition presents the achievements of the Poles in the South London Project, an initiative launched in partnership with the Polish Embassy in London in 2020 and supported by the National Heritage Lottery Fund.

The exhibition will present a series of portraits of Poles with their short stories by photographer Urszula Soltys. It will also include a display cabinet containing extracts from the oral history interviews, archive photographs, documents and other materials produced by the Polish-English-speaking residents.

In addition, visitors will have an opportunity to see a short shadow theatre production exploring one of the oral history stories, a project documentary, and a projection of the film ‘Small Time Obsession’ about the South London's Polish community created by a Polish-British film director Piotr Szkopiak.

The exhibition will be available during the Wandsworth Heritage Festival and Wandsworth Arts Fringe.
