SKN Heritage Museum celebrates Caribbean culture

Two-day celebration of Caribbean culture comes to Brixton – including an award-winning film and a unique exhibition sharing ‘stories in a suitcase’

SKN Heritage Museum, the UK’s only museum celebrating Caribbean social history, heritage and culture, is holding a two-day exhibition event at Upstairs at The Ritzy, Brixton on 21st and 22nd May from 12 noon – 6pm to give visitors the chance to experience Caribbean culture as they’ve never seen it before.

The event will include the London premiere of ‘Nine Nights’, SKN’s award-winning short film exploring Caribbean funeral traditions in the UK, and ‘Home to Home: From Caribbean Isles to British Isles’, a widely-acclaimed exhibition revealing ‘stories in a suitcase’ – what the Caribbean Windrush generation brought with them to England.

Visitors are welcome to join SKN anytime from 12 noon-6pm on 21st or 22nd May at Upstairs at The Ritzy, Brixton. ‘Nine Nights’ will be screened each day from 3.30pm-4.30pm including a Q&A and panel discussion about the subjects raised by the film.

Upstairs at The Ritzy, Brixton Oval, Coldharbour Lane, Brixton, London, SW2 1JG

All ages and communities welcome. Free entry for all.
