BCA Friends host their annual summer BBQ and family fun day at the archives. Artists, poets, and storytellers transform the archives into an enchanting and imaginative world of words, visions and laughter. Revel in the power of storytelling with Eli and watch your children’s imagination blossom as poet Adisa takes them on a lyrical journey.
Young performers are invited to take centre stage and showcase their talents. And for those wanting a historical tour curator Natalie Fiawoo will share the incredible story behind our current exhibition Family Ties. This celebrated exhibition reveals how a British-Ghanaian family rediscovered their rich heritage and connection to royalty.
BCA Friends support our heritage centre by making donations, volunteering their time and helping us achieve our fundraising goals ensuring we can continue our work. BCA’s mission is collect, preserve and celebrate the histories of people of African descent in Britain and to encourage a greater appreciation and broader understanding of British history.
