Windrush Flag Raising Ceremony
To mark the Windrush 75th anniversary there will be a Flag Raising Ceremony on the National Windrush Day, Thursday 22 June 2023. To acknowledge and celebrate those who arrived on the Empire Windrush we will be raising the Official Windrush Flag at the Grade II Listed Swanspool House in Wellingborough. The Ceremony will start at 5pm with the Revellers Steelband and the Flag will be raised at 5.30pm.
At the ceremony we will have guest speakers from different generations who will share their experiences. Along with guest singers and poets who will be performing and celebrating the creativity of the Windrush community.
A Photograph shoot will be available for family and friends in the beautiful Swanspool Gardens with 2-metre-high Anchor Monument in acknowledgment of those who travelled on the Empire Windrush.
The Revellers Steelband will perform and provide Caribbean atmosphere in the Swanspool Gardens for everyone to relax, chill and socialise to 7.30pm. There is an exhibition which will display photographs of the Empire Windrush Ship and guests can walk around the exhibition and have light refreshments.
