The British Empire Exhibition was a colonial Exhibition held at Wembley, Middlesex in 1924 and 1925.
In 1917, Britain committed to leave India, which signaled the end of the British Empire in India.
It was hoped that the Exhibition would strengthen the bonds within the empire, stimulate trade, and demonstrate British greatness at home and abroad.
The opening ceremony, April 23rd, was officially opened by King George V. This Exhibition's aim was to stimulate trade, strengthen bonds (that bind the Mother country to her sister states), and to bring closer contact to each other. It was the largest Exhibition EVER staged ANYWHERE in the world and attracted 27 million visitors.
Each colony had its own pavilion, and provided a wealth of entertainment.
