We still have a limited number of tickets available for our Black History Month talk on Wednesday 24 October at 19:30.

Tony Warner's presentation will provide the names and achievements of those black women born or resident here that fought against British racism over the last 300 years.

We are delighted to say that we will be joined by ​ members of the Black Cultural Archives based in Windrush Square, Brixton.
