The Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) team based at Trinity Community Centre will be holding an event as a Celebration of Black History Month and would like to invite everyone to come along and enjoy the day.

An exhibition highlighting the history of African and Afro Caribbean culture will be held on Monday 30 October between 1pm – 5pm when traditional food, rice and peas, Jerk Chicken and more will be served alongside an African drumming workshop.

In the UK, Black History Month is an annual event which takes place every October.  It is a momentous occasion to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions of black people to British society.

Cllr Claudine Russell, Lead Member for Communities, Leisure and Arts at Maidstone Borough Council said:

Black History Month gives everyone the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand the impact of black heritage and culture.

MBC would like to invite everyone to come along to enjoy the event at Trinity on Monday 30 October.  We really look forward welcoming you there.

Trinity Community Hub is based in the Town Centre on Church Street, where the Council’s Outreach, Housing, Health and Accommodation Teams, along with partner organisations - including community health services, are based. More information about the MBC teams can be found on the website:
