Nelson Mandela in Brixton

Nelson Mandela visited Brixton on 12th July 1996 at his personal request. Were you there? We'd love to hear your personal story.

The streets were alive with thousands of people to welcome him and the Rec hosted a concert with local choirs and performers.

BRUG, together with Brixton Blog & Bugle and Urban 75, are preparing a tribute to this visit. Were you there? Or do you know anyone who was?

Share your memories or any photos you may have via:
The BRUG Blog:

Or you can leave a message in our box on the BRUG noticeboard, on Level 3 of the Brixton Rec, outside wet change rooms.
