Event Details

22 June 1948 marks the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the SS Empire Windrush and a new era of Caribbean’s settling in post-war Britain. After a call-out for help to rebuild the Britain after the second World War many played crucial roles and took on jobs as nurses, engineers, teachers and a myriad of roles with Transport for London. Brixton became an epicenter for Caribbean culture as the strong influences of music, cuisine and fashion flourished within its community.

BCA will celebrate this special day with a family celebration of music, poetry, arts and crafts and talks. Celebrate the foundation of bass culture music as DJs play classic reggae, lovers rock, ska and hip hop. Talented poets and spoken word artists from Poetic Unity will perform inspired new work. Children can get creative with craft workshops and face-painting. And for those who want to share in conversation join us to consider the waves of cultural, political and economic legacies left by this tenacious generation.

Free courtyard activities, music, poetry and children’s workshops. 
£5 for Windrush 70 panel discussion.
