2 day cultural community festival celebrating the annual anniversary of the
Empire Windrush arriving with early post-war migrants from the Commonwealth

and impact of the Caribbean, African and Creole Communities in Britain and recognise  the beginnings of real multiculturalism across the UK. The Radiate Windrush Festival will
give all attendees an opportunity to experience the many sub-cultures within the
black community and showcase the food, music, language, dancing, drink, crafts, traditions. With this community focused & family friendly event, there will be a variety of elements for attendees to enjoy and a great
opportunity for the many generations of Windrush families to come together in a
warm sharing environment. This enriching cultural experience will use the following elements over 2 days: Staged performances – Dance, Comedy, Music, Short Dramatic Displays (both amateur groups and professional acts) Small fun fair / bouncy castle area for the younger children, Community forum circle for panel discussions, Mini workshops & interaction areas for free taster sessions, Strolling in-crowd performers, Food & Drink areas, Craft Stalls, Art Gallery and Family
