Windrush monument consultation
Wednesday, 14th July 2021 - Wednesday, 25th August 2021
The Government are commissioning a permanent national Monument to the Windrush Generation at London Waterloo station to recognise how they have enriched our nation’s history. The Monument will be a permanent tribute to a generation of arrivals from the Caribbean to this country – from the arrival of MV Empire Windrush in 1948 and in the decades that followed. It is expected to be unveiled on Windrush Day 22 June 2022. The project is being led by the Windrush Commemoration Committee (WCC), chaired by Baroness Floella Benjamin DBE.
