Go along to Nottingham Castle to see our touring exhibition ‘70 Objeks & Tings’. The exhibition, accompanied by a book of the same name, tells the stories of the pioneering Windrush Generation in their own words, and celebrates the amazing contributions they have made, and continue to make, to life in Britain, including Nottingham.

Created to bring the book to life, the touring exhibition includes a collection of items exploring Caribbean Food, Caribbean Contributions to the UK, Caribbean Homes in the UK, Caribbean Hair, Beauty and Dress, and Caribbean Culture – giving visitors the chance to get up close and personal to some of the 70 objects and things featured in the book.
