Windrush 75

This project beginning in 2023 and continuing into 2024, commemorates the 75th Windrush Anniversary with a series of touring exhibitions. In 2023 it has been travelled to to Morley College , Peterborough Cathedral, North Herefordshire Museum, and Mill Green Museum.

North Herefordshire Museum– In the Arches, Terrace gallery

The Windrush 75 exhibition began its tour in the North Hertfordshire Museum in Hitchin. The exhibition was well received and appreciated, as many visitors had personal connections to people of the Windrush generation.

“Lovely exhibition, very fun, clean and welcoming. Thank you”

“It’s so important to recognise the contributions British Citizens made to the UK and to record for future generations”

“An important exhibition which provides useful and valuable insight into the journey, settlement and contributions of the Windrush migrants.”

Morley College

The exhibition also made its way to the Barry Till Gallery, Morley College.

The Exhibition was made up of 10 large panels, that was divided into four sections: arrival and settlement, work and employment, family life and contributions. Other A3 pictures along with labels were displayed on the stair case, which were also organised into the established four sections. The exhibition was made possible thanks to the collaboration with Morley Gallery.

Peterborough Cathedral

The exhibition was exhibited in the beautiful historical setting of Peterborough Cathedral. It was installed in the newer section of the cathedral and was viewed by many tourists and visitors. The exhibition was made up of A3 images along with descriptions which tracked down the story of the Windrush Generation.
