Primary, Black Cultural Archives, and Nottingham Black Archive invites Afro-Caribbean/West Indian people from Nottingham and London to gather, eat together, and share their personal archives.


Join us for a meal at Primary and bring your archival materials. These materials could include photographs, photo albums, books, memorabilia, records, household objects, and heirlooms. This gathering is a space for you to come together as a community across generations. Therefore, we particularly encourage elders and young people to attend, however, all are welcome!

Your archives could be presented within the autumn and winter in our Reading Room, sparking conversations about the importance of collecting, preserving, and celebrating the histories of the Windrush Generation and their descendants. If this is of interest, please get in touch with

There will be a buffet of Jamaican food served between 1pm and 2pm. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
