Celebrating Black History Month with a trip to Hull
October 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm| £5.00
Following the fun and community spirit of Leeds Carnival this summer, it’s time to celebrate Black History Month. Black History Month takes place across the UK every October and celebrates black culture and the positive contribution made by African and Caribbean communities throughout the country.
A visit to Wilberforce House feels like a real way of celebrating Black History Month. William Wilberforce was born in Hull in 1759, he was a politician and a leader of the movement to ban the slave trade. Wilberforce House in Hull is his birthplace, it is now a museum that tells his story. ‘It is truly the duty of every man to promote the happiness of his fellow creatures to the utmost of his power’ William Wilberforce.
There are other museums within a short walk of Wilberforce House and many other attractions celebrating Hull as the UK City of Culture 2017. A fantastic opportunity to have a great day out in Hull. The coach will leave Edward Street (off Vicar Lane) at 10am prompt and depart Hull at 3.30pm.
Open to all carers plus one guest. We ask for a £5 deposit to secure your place on the coach. Contact the Carers Leeds Event Booking Line on 0113 246 8338 from 10am on Tuesday 11 September.
