Black History Month is your chance to discover and celebrate the achievements of the African and Caribbean communities in Westminster and the wider UK. This October we will be hosting a series of free events.
5pm, Thursday 3 October 2019
We'll be visiting some of Westminster’s hidden gems and celebrated spots that showcase the achievements of the BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) community in Westminster. The tour will include a potted history of some of Westminster’s most iconic BAME figures, restaurants and monuments, including pit stops to sample some of the best food from around the world. Each attendee will receive a goody bag courtesy of our sponsors.
6pm, Wednesday 23 October 2019
Celebrate the diversity of Westminster’s community with performances from local poets, singers, dancers, drummers and comedians. The showcase is an opportunity to learn more about African, Caribbean and Asian history in the UK. A wide range of food will be provided.
Join us to create a patchwork banner and celebrate pride in the community. 3 sessions are available, run by experienced tutors, and all ages are welcome.
Join us to learn a new skill, celebrate the community and showcase your creativity. Completed banners will be displayed at the Black History Month exhibition at Westminster City Hall, 64 Victoria Street.

The exhibition will feature leading figures from the Black, African, Asian and Caribbean communities in Westminster from the 16th century to the present day. All are welcome, no booking required.
