Colonies to Commonwealth

The sacrifice and contribution of Merchant Seamen from the British colonies in World War 2 cannot be over stated.

Unity Arts is proud to present an exhibition that truly tells their story.

The exhibition shows a timeline of over 100 nations who in 50 years created a new world across Africa, the Caribbean, the Pacific, Asia, Eastern Europe and South-East Asia.

Bangladesh, China, Poland, Africa, India, Pakistan, the Caribbean, Yemen, and Somalia; their selfless sacrifice is an important part of the seismic shift from Colonies to Independence after 1945.

We pay tribute to first time leaders such as Kenyatta, Banda, Eugenia Charles, Williams, Walesa and Mandela.

Their legacy is our story, free entry and open 7 days a week, 107 St. Mary’s Road, Southampton SO14 0AN
