There is a major new event coming to Londoners next month celebrating the diversity and richness of black culture.
Black on the Square is a new festival that will take place each year starting on September 2, in Trafalgar Square.
From food and photography to music and spoken word, Black on the Square will showcase established acts as well as some emerging talent.
The main stage will feature some of London’s biggest names including rapper ENNY of Peng Black Girls, alt rappers BXKS and some special guests.
The vibrancy of London’s black-led nightlife scene will also be demonstrated through DJ sets and live music hosted by club nights and music collectives, with performances from Touching Bass an Queer Bruk.
Visitors can also look forward to a photography installation by photographer Jenny Baptiste and a music showcase from Newham’s Art Beyond the Shell, plus a host of stalls from Black-owned businesses.
This festival is for all ages, free to attend and there is no need for tickets.
