Windrush: This FREE event is a 'Portrait of a Generation'. A photo-story by award-winning social documentary photographer Jim Grover, in celebration of the Caribbean community in South London.

The set of 60, predominantly black and white photographs and accompanying narrative, portray the current lives and traditions of this first generation of Caribbean migrants, who settled in south London and are part of its vibrant community.

The photographs are themed into nine photo-stories that, together, encompass their daily lives; community clubs; dominoes; dancing; faith; family gatherings; the Jamaican home; service to the mother country; funerals; and nine nights' (a tradition which marks the passing of a loved one).

The exhibition leads with an opening portrait and personal story of Alford Gardner, now aged 92 and one of the tiny number of surviving original 'Windrushers'.
