Since February 2011, a remarkable group of volunteer Refugee Tour Guides from a range of African countries have been working with the Wallace Collection to embark on an ambitious Heritage Lottery Funded venture to learn about the Museum's intriguing history and collections. The group have completed a unique training programme to learn about how to create and deliver guided tours and to master the art of public speaking in both intimate and large gallery spaces. Participants have selected and researched their favourite works of art and will now share their knowledge with the public in a series of fascinating free tours.

This tour will be delivered by Souleyman Sow.
