An evening to celebrate and commemorate the Windrush generation and Caribbean culture.
On 22nd June 1948, 500 migrants from the Caribbean arrived at Tilbury Docks, Essex, aboard the MV Empire Windrush. Since this historical moment ‘Windrush’ is the name that has been applied to this first generation of Caribbean migrants who moved to the UK in the late 1940s through to 60s, and who not only re-built but also enriched post-war Britain.
Salford City Council together with the University of Salford are hosting a free event that celebrates and commemorates the Windrush generation and their valuable contribution to British society.
The evening will include talks from Caribbean migrants and their families about Caribbean culture and their experiences of migration, as well as live music performances and Caribbean cuisine.
