For Black History Month, we celebrated the life of African Princess Sarah Forbes Bonetta, who lived in Gillingham for several years.

Sarah was a friend to Queen Victoria and loved music.

In 2022, we celebrated her life with a poetry workshop for National Poetry Day and a series of African Drum workshops for children aged 4 to 10 years old.

Chatham Library will host a talk about her life on Tuesday 7 February at 7.30pm.
