An exhibition of artworks and artefacts by Far East prisoners of war (FEPOW) revealing their conditions in captivity but also their spirit and resourcefulness. Their captors forbid the keeping of any records so the artworks were made secretly and most have never been displayed before.



There will be FEPOW events on throughout 2020 please visit our event page to find out more.
