Third Annual Festival of Yoruba Arts and Culture @ Clissold Park Saturday 28 July

This rich cultural festival is back for a third year.

With Nigerians making up a large group of West Africans, who call Hackney home, it’s only fitting a festival celebrating the rich cultural heritage of the Yoruba people should take place in in the borough.

Yoruba’s hail from the Western part of Nigeria…their native language is well … Yoruba… of course.

Enjoy an open air African Market, arts and crafts, food stalls, live music – listen to juju, afro beat, high-life and more.

A guaranteed family friendly day out. Admission is FREE.

About Remi

Remi Hackney Hive founder, publisher and contributor. Hackneyite and all round Girl Friday, who couldn't wait to leave Hackney and London behind her. After hitching her wagon in California, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana for 18 years, with a brief spell in Mexico, the prodigal daughter returned, happy to put an unconventional and risqué past behind her. She is owned by her two dogs Deffer(a Jack Russell & Darcy a Jack Russell/Pomeranian mix) and runs a London based pet sitting business. The big smoke is home for the moment, but she desperately yearns wide open spaces, where she hopes to call home in the near future.
