The exhibition "Suitcases and Sanctuary", made largely by local schoolchildren, is a genuinely innovative celebration of immigration housed in a magical Grade II* listed building that combines a remarkable unrestored 1719 Huguenot master silk weaver's house with a rare Victorian synagogue illuminated by a pastel coloured stained glass ceiling.
The complementary exhibition "Leave to Remain" by 3 refugee artists takes a wry look at asylum in today's Britain.
