Get ready for a Bijou takeover of the We Are Lewisham shop space.
Bijou Stories will be creating a pop-up space celebrating the borough’s LGBTQ+ community. The space will provide an opportunity for LGBTQ+ people, their friends and allies; to explore an exhibition of art and artefacts, listen to stories shared by project participants, share their own stories and memories or join in with a wide range of workshops, talks and activities.
The exhibition will showcase the stories collected so far as part of the In Living Memory project; Where To Now the Sequins Have Gone?, an oral history of the lost gay pubs of Lewisham, the people who used them and the informal support they gave each other to cope with the many challenges the community faced.

Tuesday – Saturday: 12.30pm to 7pm
Please note this event has been rescheduled from the original date of Wednesday 7 September – Sunday 18 September.
