About the Event

June 22nd this year Britain will celebrate the 75th anniversary of Windrush (‘Windrush Day’), when 500 migrants arrived at Tilbury Docks in London, from Jamaica via Bermuda, Trinidad, Cuba, and Mexico (Polish Jew refugees living there) in 1948.   Amongst them were 86 children. Have you ever wondered how they passed the time during the journey? Why not Zoom In Sunday, 18th June from 4 pm onwards for a Windrush-themed WAPPY online session?

Visitors are invited to share real and imagined stories, rhymes and their memories of ring games.  ‪4.00 pm-5 pm is for ages 4-11s; we will create cardboard/paper cut-out, of Windrush boats. From 5. pm -6 pm - pm ages 12-18/WAPPY Pioneers & Elders are welcome to join in for a Windrush/Black History & West London quiz, storytelling and a chance for any Windrush generation members to share our ‘back home’/childhood 'ring and rhyming games’. The aim is to generate poetry, short stories and artwork as well as listen to the narrative of any elders attending who form part of the current Windrush generation.  

So using visual artwork, poetry, stories, film and voice-overs we will explore the ring and clapping games the child/ren travellers on the Windrush played to pass their time en route from the Caribbean to London.

When you register here you will be sent the zoom link details.  See you soon!  Here's the Flyer:
