All the performers are part of our Mic Drop programme. Mic Drop has been designed to serve as an introductory programme for young people with a passion for producing or performing music. Participants gain advice, learn skills and get hands-on experience from trained youth workers and music industry professionals. Mic Drop gives young people aged 13-18 the opportunity to further their interest in music by giving them the chance to record music in industry-standard facilities for FREE. Mic Drop collaborative EP/Mixtape coming soon.

 

WINDRUSH 75TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

UPDATE – this event has now taken place. 

2023 marks the 75th anniversary of the arrival of HMT Empire Windrush to Britain⁠

In June, The Avenues and The Harrow Road Soup Kitchen provided a fantastic afternoon of food, music and culture to celebrate the countless contributions of the Windrush generation in the building modern Britain.

We are hoping to make this an annual event, if funding can be found.

 

Dinner and Auction

UPDATE – this event has now taken place.

On 12th May 2022 we held our first fundraising dinner and auction since 2020, raising £42k. Thank you to our generous friends and supporters who provided some fantastic auction lots and to everyone who donated.

Our next dinner and auction will be held in March 2024. Tickets will be extremely limited, but please contact shivani@avenues.org.uk if you would like to take a table of 8. We always need high value auction lots, so if you’re able to offer a stay in your holiday home, an artwork or a hard-to-buy experience, please let us know.
