Newstead Abbey Exhibition Celebration Event

19th April 2018

Newstead Abbey Visitors Attraction and the Blood Sugar Film

At the Newstead launch we celebrated and discussed the materials that we had made for the Newstead Abbey visitors’ attraction.

The Blood Sugar film, by Dr Shawn Naphtali Sobers, was also showcased at the event for all our Slave Trade Legacies family and guests to watch and celebrate. Alongside the film Michelle Hubbard showcased her poetry and Kim Thompson showcased her artwork.

We were also joined by international guests.

At the launch event we were able to show how we have influenced major visitor attractions to acknowledge our ancestors’ contributions to the wealth of the UK and the links of these sites to the transatlantic slave trade.
