Queens of the Commonwealth Premiere Screening – 9th July 2022. Tickets are available here>

In 2016 LGK in the community embraced on a journey to collate the stories of 1st generation migrants that settled in Birmingham from the beautiful Island of Cyprus.

Working with the heritage lottery fund we secured a grant to document these journeys for the 1st time in history. This then led to an independent piece of work on re living the voyage of Greek Cypriot women from Cyprus to Birmingham. In November 2019 LGK launched its 1st production of a documentary known as Queens of Amathus.
A journey of Greek Cypriot women from Cyprus to Birmingham re living their unique stories and sharing their sacrifices with generations to come.
Post the pandemic’s initial wave in early 2021 we were also successful again in securing funds to produce our second documentary Queens of the Commonwealth.
This production documents the unique journey of 22 queens from various commonwealth nations that have migrated to Birmingham. All these stories are at risk and without organisations like LGK who are actively collecting these Hollywood standard life experiences through our queens they would merely be lost in time.

*Saturday 9th July 2022, at The Pavilion, Moor Lane, Birmingham.

IT IS BECAUSE THE SACRIFICES OF THE QUEENS OF YESTERDAY THAT WE LIVE THE PRIVILEGED LIVES WE LIVE TODAY
