The annual festival celebrating the colourful and diverse arts and culture of Nigeria will take place once again, on 5th of August in London. It offers a vast amount of activities, in a great Central London location, being perfect for the whole family.

 

For the 3rd year in a row, a whole summer day is prepared to welcome everybody in a multicultural environment, enabling the contact with the Nigerian culture. An entertaining filled program is prepared, featuring cultural performances, workshops, competitions, fashion, live acts by comedians, Nigerian food and live music showcasing renowned genres such as Afrobeats, Highlife, Juju, Jazz and many others.

Several Nigerian as well as UK artists will be brought in the spotlight, underlying, thus, the fruitful connexion of different cultures that guests will enjoy. The Nigerian culture will unfold in all its forms. But it is not only about the Nigerian culture, it is about surpassing the stereotypes’ barriers and become aware and part of the multicultural world while having fun all together.

More than that, this festival is a social, educational, cultural, and business networking platform for community cohesion and harmony through Arts and Culture. This year, donations from the event will go towards the Sickle Cell Society. It is a UK charity that promotes the awareness of Sickle cell disease.

It is all about celebrating culture and it is culture indeed that brings unity in diversity.
