June 2023 will mark the 75th anniversary of the arrival of HMT Empire Windrush at Tilbury Docks in Essex. To mark this significant milestone, a commemorative service of thanksgiving and celebration will be hosted by Windrush Generations who will take over the Alhambra Theatre.

Carrying some 500 skilled workers and their families from the Caribbean and Commonwealth, HMT Empire Windrush brought with them their talents, skills and culture to help rebuild the UK in the aftermath of the Second World War.

The Windrush Generation, who arrived between 1948 and 1971, and their descendants have made significant contributions to the social, cultural and economic fabric of the United Kingdom.

This special service will provide the opportunity for churches to come together in joyous fellowship as we recognise and reflect on the vital role played by this generation in Bradford and beyond to honour their legacy.
