Hackney Windrush competition July 2021

The group was formed following their participation in the 2019 New Year’s Day Parade and aim to preserve the historical contributions of the Windrush generation through artistic projects.

COVID19 has prevented public appearances but they are busy working on the 21/22 objectives so keep tuned to the cultural teams platforms for updates!

Not only are they giving away 3 calendars but each of the 3 winners can nominate a Hackney Windrusher to be featured in the 2023 calendar.

In order to win one of these calendars you will need to answer 3 questions –

1. Who was the first Black Mayor of Southark?
2. What was the real name of the Calypsonian Lord Kitchener?
3. What gift did Cllr Williams send out to Hackney residents, who
have contributed to the Windrush celebrations over the years?

Submit your answers to windrushers2019@gmail.com by the 6th August and the winners will be selected by random by the 8 th Aug.
