Windrush Day celebrates art, culture and creativity within south London’s Caribbean community, across generations.

Join us on Saturday 22 June for a day of events for all ages, celebrating Windrush Day 2024. With cooking workshops, family activities and a film screening curated by the SLG’s youth collective, the Art Assassins.

Windrush Day 2024 marks the 76th anniversary when HMT Empire Windrush first docked in Britain in 1948. It is a key moment for us to come together to highlight the many contributions of Caribbean communities in south London.
