Monday 28th October 2019 - Friday 6th December 2019

Opening Event 31st October 2019

6-8pm

Join us on 31st October for the opening of The Missing Chapter: Black Chronicles, a pop-up photography exhibition  featuring rare images portraying people of African & Caribbean descent in 19th century Victorian & Edwardian Britain. 

Additionally we will be celebrating the final day of Black History Month with a themed evening of Caribbean & African food discussing cooking influences  bought to the Caribbean from West Africa during the transatlantic slave trade and how it became infused with the indigenous inhabitants of the Islands, Europeans, Asians and evolved into modern styles of cooking. During the evening attendees will be served tapas-style Afro-Caribbean & African infused tasty bites with a contemporary twist. There will be discussions on the different styles of  cuisines and how each Island has its own unique signature dish.

This event is part of our new exhibition programme: Stories of Eumelanin People. During the next twelve months we will be celebrating the work of artists from Africa and the Diaspora.
