To celebrate Black History Month, Wayside Community Centre held a Bonfire Storytelling Night the 5th November.

We heard Anansi-tales from Jamaica; mango-memories from Africa; anecdotes from the Caribbean and stories about Hackney, bonfire nights and how the neighbourhood has changed and become what it is today.
