Celebrate the anniversary of the Empire Windrush's arrival in Britain at Royal Museums Greenwich's family-friendly festival


Celebrate the anniversary of the Empire Windrush's arrival in Britain at Royal Museums Greenwich's family-friendly festival.

HMT Empire Windrush arrived in Britain on 22nd June 1948. On board were more than 800 passengers from the Caribbean.

Each year on 22nd June Royal Museums Greenwich partners with the Caribbean Social Forum and other local partners to showcase Caribbean culture and the legacy of the Windrush generation in the UK today. A new addition for 2024 is the National Windrush Museum, who will contribute a co-curated series of performances as part of the festival.

This year the Windrush Day Festival will take over the grounds outside the Queen's House and National Maritime Museum, with a range of exciting activities including talks, games, spoken word performances, and a Caribbean-owned food and craft market
