St George’s CofE Church in Shirley invites you for a fantastic evening of food, music, poetry, entertainment and dancing at their first Black History Month Concert which is not to be missed!
The evening starts at 6pm with a fusion buffet and drinks to give a taste of different foods from Africa and West Indies.
This is followed by the evening’s concert from 7pm to 10pm, offering a mixture of music and poetry reflecting the richness and diversity of Africa and the West Indies in the UK.
There will be art on display, including imagery from the Windrush Generation, paintings from Nigerian’s own son DRE, and arts and crafts available for sale in support of the Hope Foundation in Ghana.
And, to round off the evening, from 10-11pm, there’s a “shake a leg” session brought to you by DJ Sabastian.
You really cannot afford to miss this event!!
This evening has been made possible by the support of Shirley North Councillors – Cllr Sue Bennett, Cllr Gareth Streeter and Cllr Richard Chatterjee.
