Slough to Celebrate the Achievements of Britain’s African and Caribbean Communities


Shining, Africa


RESIDENTS are invited to experience the history and achievements of Britain’s African and Caribbean communities.

A month-long event celebrating black history will conclude with the sights and sounds of Africa filling Slough High Street, on Saturday, April 25, between noon and 4pm.

It will feature West African and Zimbabwean music and dance, a traditional choir and much more.

The celebrations, funded by Arts Council England, promote African arts and culture past, present and future.

Slough Borough Council teamed up with SWIPE, Art Beyond Belief, Destiny Support and Aik Saath to stage free activities from traditional storytelling to Djembe drum circles this month.

The programme started on Tuesday with Borrow A Person Workshops and will continue next week.

Alisha Kadri, arts officer for the borough council, said: “It’s a great opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions African Caribbean communities have made in Slough and across the world against a backdrop of food, music and dance.

“There will be lots to see and do and a great day out for the family, so come along and join in the celebrations.”
