The Windrush Collection presents A Christmas Windrush Front Room

Step into a recreation of a Windrush-era living room from the 1940s and 1950s, complete with an actor playing ‘Aunty Vie’ who will recount stories about the Windrush Ship and life (and Christmas) in London during this time period.

On Friday lunch time there is a chance to hear more about the Windrush and share your memories with author and Front Room host, Tony Fairweather.

This event is a highlight within the “This is Croydon” programme, featuring festive activities coordinated by local community organisations and multi-faith groups under the theme ‘A Very Croydon Christmas‘. For more details, visit this link.
