Sunday 22nd October @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom

Where are you from? This is a question many of us were asked at some point in our lives. The majority of people tend to answer this by giving the name of a country, for example, ‘I am from the UK’. Others are more specific, preferring to identify with a region or a city – ‘I am a Londoner’. Some feel strongly about their parents’ country of origin, others only consider their own country of birth.
