40 Years of The South Asia Collection – 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of Philip and Jeannie Millward, the founders of The South Asia Collection, first journey to Swat Valley, Pakistan. That trip in 1979 saw the first objects shipped back and stored in a repository on Waterworks Road in Norwich. Throughout 2019 The South Asia Collection will be holding a series of events and exhibitions to celebrate this anniversary.
All our exhibitions are drawn from objects and artworks in the collection.
Our Historical Bulding
The South Asia Collection is housed in a restored Victorian roller skating rink in the centre of Norwich, only a hundred metres from the market place. The building is a Grade II listed architectural gem, with a dramatic arched wooden roof.
