Radiate’s Caribbean Windrush Festival Saturday 25th June – Sunday 26th June

Radiate’s Caribbean Windrush Festival Heads to Southwark

One of London’s best Black culture community festivals is returning for a Windrush celebration weekend. Running for its 5th year, Radiate Windrush Festival takes up a new

home in London’s cultural hotspot of Burgess Park for a full weekend programme. Moving closer to London’s centre, the new location was chosen to pay homage to the history

of Black festival & ‘All Dayer’ culture in South London and highlight the rich diversity which has shaped Southwark into becoming the vibrating melting pot of music, dance, food,

fashion & arts.

From young to old, big to small, this much loved grassroots festival has truly created a playground for all. With its strapline from ‘Granny right through to baby’ it knows how to

create spaces that appeal to all ages. Look forward to a jam packed event with something for everyone. Here’s a peak to what’s on this year.

Art enthusiasts will get their fill with an artsy display of Caribbean words & phrases along the Lingo Wall by UAL Students, an eye full with giant 20ft x 10ft murals and an immersive experience in the walkthrough open-air gallery’s 74 piece photography exhibition from the Black heritage collection by Getty Images.

Music lovers can enjoy over 50 acts across the 2 days taking to the stage from across the local arts scene. The sound systems are also back in full effect with the basslines, waistlines and melodies celebrating great Black music from across the eras to get those shoulders shaking.

Foodies are not forgotten and will get their tummies satisfied with the pickings from various Caribbean Islands & fusion cuisine.

Elders have their very own space this year to socialise and spend time with friends, maybe slap some Caribbean style dominoes & have a cuppa

Little Ones will be occupied too with a play space!

There will also be plenty of Tropical Punch, Garden Games, Workshops & more…

Make estate ballots fair!

Dear FriendMAKE ESTATE BALLOTS FAIR!

The Public interest Law Centre (PILC) and their solicitor, Paul Heron, has been been a fantastic help to our campaigning work at the Elephant.

Now the PILC is campaigning to level the playing field for ballots on the future of council estates, which include proposals for demolition.  Many of these ballots are being won by councils, after using uncapped public funds to canvass for ‘yes’ votes.

The London Assembly has proposed a Resident Empowerment Reserve Fund to redress the balance.  Local communities opposed to demolition would be able to draw on this Fund, to put across their point of view.

Sadiq Khan now has to decide whether to include the Fund in his 2022-2023 budget.  He is considering this now  and will respond this Thursday 24th February, at Mayor’s Question Time, when he presents his final budget to the Assembly.

EMAIL THE MAYOR NOW!

PILC has set up an emailing campaign to the Mayor, via this link – https://www.pilc.org.uk/tell-sadiq-to-say-yes-to-the-resident-empowerment-fund/ .

The email urges the Mayor to adopt the Fund.  It also asks that the terms of access to the Fund is formulated by community members who have experienced estate-ballot processes and would have benefited from the Fund.  The email will be copied to Tom Copley, the deputy Mayor for housing.

The email only takes one minute.  PILC’s message can be retweeted https://mobile.twitter.com/publiclawcentre/status/1489266674125574144
