“75 Ways to Celebrate Windrush75 in Just One Day”, 14 October, Woolwich Works, The Fireworks Factory, SE18 6HD will have sustainability at its heart, promises organiser, Michelle Hines of Hines Designs.
“75 Ways to Celebrate Windrush75 in Just One Day” will, wherever possible, minimise the use of non-reusable plastic waste and aims to use recyclable materials and local providers to reduce carbon emissions. Sustainability will be at the heart of this celebration as we strive to work with sponsors whose businesses and philosophy is also based on being environmentally friendly.” Said, Michelle Hines.
22 June 2023, marked 75 Years since the landing of Empire Windrush at Tilbury docks. This is the ship which brought the largest groups of migrants, British citizens from the Commonwealth to the UK. Despite the hostile welcome which greeted them, they and their descendants have made an indelible mark on British life.
Michelle was driven to hold this event during October and what better month, outside of June, to establish this event given the focus on Black history.
”My Grandmother and parents, along with many others born and living in the Caribbean, were invited to the UK by the British Government during the Windrush era to help rebuild Britain after the second world war. They and many other Caribbeans who settled in the UK, made invaluable contributions to British society in terms of hard work; a buoyant economy; and a vibrant culture.”
“In recognition of the huge sphere of influence of the Windrush Generation and their descendents – from our historical past to present day and into the future – we call everyone to join us to celebrate “75 Ways to Celebrate Windrush75 in Just One Day”! to honour our Windrush Pioneers and the impact of their legacy”, says, Michelle.
“75 Ways to Celebrate Windrush75 in Just One Day”! will feature Caribbean Lunch, the largest Caribbean Afternoon Tea Party in the country; Rum Cocktail Bar; Classical music from musicians from Chineke Orchestra, the most diverse orchestra in the UK and also from the Royal College of Music; a show of lovingly restored classic cars and high performance vehicles on display by Windrush Legacy owners; Children’s activities; together with a vibrant Art Exhibition, to name but a few activities. Guests will also be able to live like the Royals, by hiring their own personal butler, who’s worked for the Royal Household and many VIPs.
“This would not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors”, continues Michelle. “Many thanks to Delgaty Teas, Jamaica Rum Vibes, Eurobottle & Design, Red Fox’s Kitchen, Alando Spaulding Professional Butler Services & Woolwich Works.”
