Celebrate Black History Month
Join Town Hall Arts in Trowbridge this Saturday 6 October 2018 to celebrate Black History Month.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Empire Windrush, which docked in London on 21 June 1948 carrying 492 passengers from the West Indies who planned on settling in the UK. The arrival of the Windrush is traditionally taken to mark the beginning of a period, lasting from 1948 to 1971, of migration from the Commonwealth to the UK – the “Windrush Generation”.
To celebrate the arrival of the Windrush and its passengers, and to mark Black History Month, we have put together the exhibition ‘Wiltshire Remembers the Windrush Generation’ to showcase the stories of some of the many West Indians who came to settle here in Wiltshire.
Wiltshire Remembers the Windrush Generation will be on display at Town Hall Arts , Trowbridge, on 6 October 2018 and will tour Wiltshire libraries and community venues in the future. Many thanks to Helen Pocock of HP Source of Design for designing the exhibition.
