Historian, professor, and author Hakim Adi explores the story of African and Caribbean people in Britain during 1878 – 1919.


Historian, professor, and author Hakim Adi explores the story of African and Caribbean people in Britain, covering the period from when St Mary Magdalene’s church was built to the first world war (1878 – 1919). Adi outlines significant world events during this period and the connected issues.

Organiser of Our Shared Heritage Talk with Hakim Adi

Grand Junction is a new venue for community, arts and culture based at St Mary Magdalene Church, run by Paddington Development Trust. We offer a bustling programme of activities for young people, families, and adults, as well as a café serving delicious food and drinks.

Over the past 24 months the church has been lovingly restored, and we have a beautiful new building designed by Dow Jones Architects.
