This project focuses on the stories of Caribbean people who came to Greater Manchester during one of the most significant influxes of colonial British citizens, also known as the ‘Windrush Generation,’ during the very early stages of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. The project focuses on sharing and showcasing stories of our participants experiences, teachings, knowledge, thoughts and outlooks of the monarchy, both before and after they arrived in the UK. It will celebrate the cultural influences the UK and the monarchy has had on each separate stages of their lives through photos, a film documentary and shared stories. Join us for a Windrush lunch special to learn and hear about the work.
