There’s been really high demand for this event! And we know that, even if we still had tickets available, not everyone is able to attend events in-person. So we’re going to livestream the evening as well.

Let us know your email address and we’ll send you a link to watch the online video stream of the event – live from 6.30pm on Tues 2 November.

What to expect

Join us at the Guildhall for a celebratory evening of stories, film and spoken word – complete with live band and free Caribbean food.

The evening kicks off with a relaxed meal in the main hall. Grab a plate and take the chance to chat as the band gets started.

There’ll be live music while you eat, and then the lights will go down, the big screen will come on and you’ll have the opportunity to watch Elders from Gloucester tell their stories in short films.

The films will be interspersed with spoken word performances from fantastic poets, including Bristol laureate Miles Chambers.
