We bring to Islington the 'Go Africa Cultural Festival' supported by the Mayor of London.
Go Africa Cultural Festival is a movement to mobilise the African and Caribbean creative communities to come together and showcase talent, art, cuisine and education alongside well-being workshops to support our young adults and children.
