It might be autumn but the warmth of the Caribbean comes to Nottingham this week with an event celebrating the city’s Caribbean community.
Nottingham City Homes organised the free event which started at noon on 27 October at Bulwell Riverside on Main Street, Bulwell as part of black history month.
It included dancing, steel-drumming, storytelling and poetry as well as African-Caribbean food.
An exhibition by award-winning group Universal Roots, made up of Nottingham City Homes African Caribbean tenants called the Black and Minority Ethnic Forum, was on display showing Nottingham’s diverse communities.
A short stories competition with stories written by the group about their families’ journeys from the Caribbean to Nottingham was judged at the event as part of Nottingham City Homes diversity week.
Secretary George Pashley of Nottingham City Homes Company said: “There really is something for everyone at the event to mark Black History Month at Bulwell Riverside.”
