75th Empire Windrush 2023 - Windrush Lives

In June 1948, a ship named Empire Windrush set sail from far-off Caribbean Islands on the long journey to England.

On board was a whole generation of enterprising young Black men and women, prepared to travel across the ocean in search of a better life through hard work in local industries and services.

As British subjects they travelled with a sense of duty to the ‘Mother Country’ and its call for help to rebuild after the Second World War.

The 'Windrush Lives Exhibition' at the Reading Town Hall is here until October 2023. More details here
