Leeds Welcome | Sorrel & Black Cake: A Windrush Story

Sorrel & Black Cake: A Windrush Story

A radiogram stands proud in the corner of Miss Letty’s immaculate front room. Gathered around are her family and friends, full of questions about her life and determined to give her the send-off she deserves. As they delve into her photo album and record collection, they are transported back to her arrival in Britain from the Caribbean in 1948, and the beginning of an incredible story. Celebrate the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the SS Empire Windrush with this well-spiced helping of music, movement and oral history, inspired by Caribbean and black British heritage and tales of the Windrush Generation. _SORREL & BLACK CAKE_ IS COMING TO THE MANDELA CENTRE, LEEDS ON FRIDAY 22ND JUNE.
