Event Info

Experience a new exhibition that celebrates the history and communities of Tiger Bay and the docks.

In partnership with The Heritage and Cultural Exchange (HCE), three new displays have been created in the Pierhead that give visitors a glimpse into life in Tiger Bay and the docks from the 1880s – 1950s.

The HCE selected some of their favourite photos from their collection and other local archives to show what the area looked like in the past and how it has changed.
