Based on Manuscripts and Special Collections at The University of Nottingham’s extensive archives on colonial India, and including some treasures generously loaned by Nottingham Castle Museum, ‘Threads of Empire’ showcases the history of tense negotiation, resistance and rebellion that lay behind the emergence of India as the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of the British Empire.
The exhibition will be opened at the Weston Gallery, Nottingham Lakeside Arts, on Wednesday 12th April (5pm-7pm). Nottinghamshire Local History Association members are very welcome to attend. The exhibition will run until Sunday 20th August.
