‘Harambee’ (meaning ‘coming together’ in Swahili) is inspired by the rich stories from our area. Working with older members of the Notting Hill and surrounding community, it will shine a light on the vital political history of the area and its importance within the British Civil Rights movement.

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

This intergenerational exchange between our Young Company and older community members, will culminate in a public sharing of these stories this summer.

Harambee asks, what can we learn from the past and what do we want from the future?

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

Tickets will be available soon.
