This production documents the unique journey of 22 queens from various commonwealth nations that have migrated to Birmingham.
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.

It is because the sacrifices of the Queens of yesterday, that we live the priviliged lives we live today.
