‘Harambee’ (meaning ‘coming together’ in Swahili) is inspired by the rich stories from our area. Working with members of the Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove and surrounding community, it will shine a light on the vital political history of the area which has often been of national importance. 

From Notting Hill Carnival to the Mangrove 9 and Michael X, many significant moments in recent British history happened on the doorstep of the Gate Theatre.

This intergenerational exchange between our Young Company and older community members, will culminate in an archive that charts the story of the community. 

CALL-OUT FOR PARTICIPANTS
If you are interested in sharing your memories of Notting Hill/Ladbroke Grove and the surrounding community we would love to hear from you. Your participation can be as little or as much as you want it to be, from simply having a chat to taking on a larger role. 

JOIN US FOR A FREE COMMUNITY LUNCH
There will be a free community lunch on Saturday 18 August 2018 at Rugby Portobello Trust (221 Walmer Lane, W11 4EY) from 1-3pm, a fun afternoon of eating together and sharing memories from the local community about our local area.

If you have any questions or would like to participate in the project, please email yasmin@gatetheatre.co.uk with Harambee Project in the subject line or call us on 0207 229 5387.

This project is supported by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Arts Grants Scheme.

Tickets will be available soon.
