UK-Pakistan 70th Anniversary photo exhibition launches at the Luton Central Library

A photo exhibition from the British High Commission in Islamabad showing the link between the UK and Pakistan over the last 70 years is currently being exhibited at the Luton Central Library from 1st November to 13th December 2017.

The Acting British High Commissioner Richard Crowder said:

We are delighted that our photo exhibition is being hosted at the Luton Central Library. The exhibition is a celebration of 70 years of cooperation between the UK and Pakistan – from our ties in trade, sports, politics, development, defence, education, infrastructure and culture to our close people to people links.

The city of Luton has a large population of people of Pakistani ethnic origin and is at the centre of those links and I hope both the people of Luton and visitors to the city will enjoy the exhibition to the full.

The exhibition has also been shown in the Houses of Parliament and is currently on display until the end of the year in The Library of Birmingham, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow and the Manchester Central Library. It has also been exhibited in eight cities across Pakistan.

Throughout the year, the British High Commission, in collaboration with the Pakistan High Commission in London, is organising several events and activities to mark 70 years of UK and Pakistan’s relations. Details of these events are regularly featured on the British High Commission’s social media pages.
