Black Cultural Archives revises admission charges to support its long-term future collecting, preserving and celebrating Black British histories

Black Cultural Archives (BCA), the only national heritage centre dedicated to collecting, preserving and celebrating the histories of African and Caribbean people in Britain, is to begin charging £3 per adult admission charge for exhibitions in the main hall.

BCA’s mission is to continue to expand its archive collection which permanently documents and celebrates the histories of Black people in Britain. Tickets to all future exhibitions will be £3 for adults, with children under 16 and Friends of BCA granted free entry and concessions for pensioners and students. There will also be free admission days and evenings for local community groups. This new admission policy will help to #BackBCA by supporting its long-term sustainability goals, enabling BCA to continue to provide a platform for otherwise untold stories.

For the first time, BCA is calling for exhibition proposals for 2019-23 seasons from community groups, artists and experts across the arts and heritage centre. Through BCA’s exhibitions, visitors can engage in unique learning experiences, cultural exchanges and intergenerational conversations that stimulate a greater understanding and appreciation of history.
