Even though Windrush Day had been held for many years, it only received political support in 2018, on the 70th anniversary of the landing of the first Caribbean migrants. The day's purpose is to encourage "communities across the country to celebrate the contribution of the Windrush Generation and their descendants."


Windrush Day this 71st year, is on Saturday 22 June. And here at Colourful Radio we are dedicating the entire day's airtime to celebrating all things Windrush - music, documentaries, histories, panel discussions and more.
