Rum, Rhyme and Liming, a Caribbean social event for older people and their friends and families.
Come and enjoy Caribbean culture and celebrate the legacy of the Windrush generation and their descendants who contributed significantly to the rebuilding and shaping of this country. On June 22nd, Windrush Day, Alexandra Palace will raise the roof of our newly refurbished Theatre with music, poetry, social dancing and song, and commemorate the arrival of the Empire Windrush at Tilbury Docks in Essex in 1948. Hear from a range of artists and performers including multi award-winning recipient of the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry John Agard, and delight in the infectious calypso and kaiso music of Tobago Crusoe – who featured unforgettably in Paddington and Paddington 2 and was the Calypso Monarch of Trinidad and Tobago (1983). So put on your finest, and get yourself up to the palace!
The event is FREE for seniors, unwaged, disabled, students and under 5’s with Rum based cocktails, mocktails and soft drinks, and Caribbean snacks available for purchase.

Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
