Create A Welcome Flag

Celebrate the arrival of the Empire Windrush in 1948 by making a welcome flag to greet the travellers. Imagine how they would have felt after their long journey to a new country and create a welcome flag to greet them when they arrive at Tilbury Docks.

This session will take place via Zoom and is aimed at families with children aged 4–11. Please note that any children under 10 will need to be supervised by an adult, and adults without accompanying children will be unable to attend.

To take part in this session you will need a large sheet of paper, a pair of scissors, coloured/ pattern paper and some felt tips, pencils or crayons.
