National Windrush Day 2023

31 May 2023

National Windrush Day on 22 June 2023 will mark the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the passengers of the Empire Windrush to the UK. The day celebrates the contribution and achievements of the Windrush generation and their descendants.

To celebrate the 75th anniversary, local councils and community groups are invited to use the toolkit of Windrush 75/National Windrush Day 2023 marketing materials. The toolkit includes logos and images that can be used on Twitter banners, letterheads and posters. Click here to view the toolkit.

More than 40 community groups have been awarded funding through the Windrush Day Grant Scheme for arts, educational and sporting projects across England. £750,000 has been awarded to projects including The Brixton Project, a community-led carnival of art, theatre and music, and the Blackstory Partnership, a commemorative Windrush 75 event in Birmingham. More than 200 Windrush Day projects have received a share of the £2.75 million funding over four years in celebration of the contributions of the Windrush generation and their families.
