Refugee Week is the UK’s largest festival of arts, education and cultural events to celebrate the contribution of people who have sought sanctuary, and to encourage understanding between communities.

To mark World Refugee Day, contributors to the new-writing anthologies Refugee Stories, A Country of Refuge, and Over Land Over Sea discuss their first-hand experiences of seeking sanctuary in Britain. Chaired by Lucy Popescu (Former Director of English PEN Writers in Prison Committee).

The event will include a book-signing.
