Family and friends had a trip down memory lane when their children staged a powerful play about the Windrush.
Cold Paradise, presented by black youth group the Descendants, was staged at the Priory Community Centre, in Acton Lane, Acton, last Saturday.
The drama portrayed the story of the first people who left the Caribbean for Britain hoping for a better future for themselves, as well as the positive contribution made by lead-ers like MPs Paul Boateng and Diane Abbott.
Margaret Noel, founder of the Descendants, said: "Cold Paradise went off very well. We had a full house, with many new faces, which is always lovely. There were some great comments like, 'it brought tears to my eyes', and 'it brought back memories of when I left Grenada and I left my family behind'.
"It was lovely to hear the children talking about and experiencing what their parents and grandparents went through on their journey."
Inspector Andrew Dean, of Ealing police, was one of the guests on the night.
