Dance, stories and comedy among events to celebrate Black History Month
A variety of entertainment will be on offer in Croydon throughout October as the borough celebrates Black History Month.
Festivals, stories, crafts, dance and costumes that profile the traditions of African and Caribbean communities will feature at a range of events.
Libraries will also host events portraying black heritage and culture through poetry, story readings, live performances and music workshops, with visits from children's TV presenter Floella Benjamin, musician Alexander D Great and writer Sandra Agard.
There will also be live performances at Fairfield Halls, including the variety show In Celebration of Our Culture and a night of laughter with comedian and TV personality Reginald D Hunter.
Councillor Vidhi Mohan, cabinet member for communities and economic development, said: "Croydon has one of the country’s most diverse populations and has a vibrant African and Caribbean culture.
"It is something we celebrate all year round and it is great to see such a variety of entertainment taking place during Black History Month."
