Windrush 75 - Celebration
It was an honour for Croydon BME Forum to host alongside Croydon Minster, for a special Windrush Day service of thanksgiving and celebration.
This year was extra special, as we marked Windrush 75 – the 75th anniversary of the Empire Windrush passenger liner arriving in Great Britain. Croydon is proud to be home to one of the largest Black Caribbean communities in the UK, and Windrush Day is an opportunity for us all to celebrate the Windrush generation and their legacy.
Our Caribbean Influencers exhibition at The Museum of Croydon honours our Caribbean residents’ past and present, and their rich contribution to every aspect of life in our borough. Do check out Caribbean Influencers if you haven’t already – part of our London Borough of Culture celebrations, it’s on at the museum until 21 July 2023
