Windrush Activities Day

Celebrate Windrush 75! Join us for an unforgettable all-day event of Windrush Day Activities!

This year, we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush Generation. 🚢 The Windrush generation refers to the incredible individuals who journeyed to the UK between 1948 and 1971 from Caribbean countries, mainly Jamaica, on the iconic HMT Empire Windrush. 🌍 They were invited by the British government to help rebuild the country after World War II and were granted indefinite leave to remain.

'Games People Play' - Get ready for a day filled with activities, inspired by the games and traditions of the vibrant Caribbean culture! 🏝️
🎭 Carnival mask making
🎨 Create colorful buntings
🏛️ Explore fascinating collections from Pitt Rivers Museum and Museum of Oxford
🎶 Music and dance

➡️ Join the Oxford Windrush Group on Saturday, June 24th, from 10am to 4pm, at Templars Square in Cowley, Oxford. It's going to be an immersive experience celebrating the rich heritage and contributions of the Windrush generation. Don't miss out! ✨

But that's not all! On the same day, we have something special for the dominoes enthusiasts! 🎲 Drop-in and enjoy some friendly dominoes playing. Plus, stay tuned for an exciting evening event at the Cowley Workers Club. Details coming soon!

Let's come together as a community to honor the indomitable spirit and resilience of the Windrush generation. Spread the word, invite your friends and family, and let's make Windrush 75 a day to remember! 🎉🌟
