Joseph - A Windrush Story

A new dance performance by Dani Harris-Walters, celebrating the 75th Windrush Anniversary. 

Joseph is an elderly man who retells his two grandchildren a story about his journey from the West Indies to the UK.

We see the joy in his eyes as he arrives, the conflict he wasn’t able to predict, and the hope he passes down to the next generation.


Up in the Air

Two summers ago, our Up in the Air flight attendants were on board at Summer of Festivals back when we were all grounded for a little while. This postcard exhibition features 88 postcards of festival goers in their dream destinations.

The air hostesses will also be doing an ‘air-obics’ session – a flight attendant themed fitness class for all ages and abilities at 2pm.
