Jamaica Patty Co. Celebrates Windrush 75

On 22 June each year, British Caribbean communities come together to celebrate Windrush.

Windrush is the name given to the ship by the British government, and which brought immigrants from Jamaica and the Caribbean to the UK.  June 22 acknowledges the contributions the Windrush generation and their descendants have made to British society.

One of the celebrations, taking place at Jamaica Patty Co., is hosted by Theresa Roberts, Jamaica’s new UK ambassador for Arts & Culture.  From 3pm to 9pm, at Convent Garden, Theresa and team will entertain guests with music from historic record labels VP Records and Greensleeves Records.  There will also be an exhibition from some of the UK’s finest UK-based artists.  The event is an official presentation by Ambassador Roberts and VP Records.
