All Aboard the Empire Windrush – Film Making with Bigfoot

£1.50 per child

Suitable for ages 8-12


A South Tyneside Libraries event delivered as part of their week of Empathy Day celebrations. 

Learn about Clinton as he waves goodbye to his homeland and prepares for a new life in post-war Britain.

What will he miss? Why is his family starting a new life in the Motherland? What was life like on board the Empire Windrush in 1948?

Celebrating over 65 years since the ship first docked at Tilbury, the story of the Empire Windrush marks the foundations of multi-cultural Britain. Exploring how we treat others who are different, making people welcome and new beginnings, this interactive film making day is the perfect opportunity for children to think about people from other cultures and create something the children/library can watch back and celebrate.
