Hopelessly In Love: An Evening of Performances hosted by Carroll Thompson

Tuesday 22 June – 7-10pm – booking required

Summer vibes with sing-along anthems and slow jams from Carroll and her Lovers Rock crew

On 22nd June, Windrush Day, we are continuing to celebrate Black British culture, honouring the descendants and community of the Windrush Generation here in Tottenham and beyond. 

Hopelessly In Love: An Evening of Performances hosted by Carroll Thompson

Music and performances hosted by Carroll Thompson

Soak up the summer vibes with our fabulous Windrush Festival reopening mixed bill hosted by Queen of Lover’s Rock, Carroll Thompson.  

Start the evening with sing-along anthems and slow jams from Caroll Thompson and her legendary Lover’s Rock crew, Janet Kay and Victor Romero Evans. Enjoy some spoken word with Sarah Lasoye. Hear from and watch Sky Portrait Artist of the Year 2020 Curtis Holder as he draws his magic (maybe even you!) and then listen to the incredible Turner Prize nominated Black Obsidian Sound System, an art, sound and radical activist community of queer, trans and non binary people of colour who’ll be honouring the legacies of sound system culture. More names to be announced.

Food and a bar will be available in our courtyard throughout the evening.

“It’s an honour to host an evening of eclectic and exceptional talent at the reopening of Bernie Grant Arts Centre. As one of the creative artists commissioned by Artistic director/CEO Hannah Azieb, the support I have been privileged to receive to develop a brand new play and curate an ‘Evening with’, has been immeasurable … exciting times ahead at BGAC!”
