Windrush Day

22nd June 2020 marked ‘Windrush Day’ a commemoration of the ‘Windrush generation’ – those who moved to the UK from the Caribbean, following a successful campaign led by Patrick Vernon which brought about the first commemorative event in 2018. The date was chosen to mark the date of the Empire Windrush ship bringing its first group of migrants to the UK from Jamaica to Tilbury Docks.
