Windrush Celebrations: Brent trip to Tilbury where Empire Windrush arrived. Saturday 20th July

From Learning Through Arts

Our non-profit organisation; Learning Through The Arts is currently running a Brent-based heritage project surrounding Windrush Celebrations titled; The Story of Windrush Migrants. 

We are running a trip to Tilbury Dock, London International Cruise Terminal. This project, a partnership between Learning Through The Arts and The Brent Museum & Archives commemorates the 70th anniversary of the arrival of Empire Windrush in 1948.

There will be a £10 cost for the trip - please do bring this along with you on the day and you will receive a receipt.

We will meet at 9:15 at The Library at Willesden Green, 95 High Rd, Willesden, London NW10 2SF for a prompt departure of 9:30am to arrive to Tilbury Cruise Terminal, RM18 7NG. 

We will aim to arrive by 11am. 

There will be time for a rest break before the tours begin at 11:15. They will last approximately 1 hour. 
There will be activities for us to enjoy after that time and the Carnival procession will arrive at the site at approximately 13:15. There will be performances, workshops and food available to purchase throughout the day with the event closing at 16:00. 

We will then take the coach back to the drop off point of Willesden Green Library hopefully arriving back by no later than 6/6:30pm.
