We are devastated to hear of the passing of Mona Hammond OBE. As one of the founders of Talawa, a trailblazer and champion of Black British theatre, Mona’s passion and vision will remain fundamental to all we do, and her legacy will forever burn bright.

This absolutely cannot happen. Our very darkest hour as a nation. To put these people through more horror is unbelievably cruel and flies in the face of all we have just been celebrating. No!
