When Africa Came To Covent Garden

We hope you’ve all been having fun enjoying the hot summer sun shine and getting your grooves on at one of the many festivals happening in the capital. If you haven’t, you better hurry…autumn’s only around the corner and in the wise words of Tinie Tempah, You Only Live Once (YOLO).

Last week, we had an amazing time at Covent Garden as the popular hotspot was transformed into a scene out of Africa for the Africa Centre Summer Festival.

The Piazza which is normally known for its eclectic mix of high street and designer brands alongside independent retailers not to mention the market stalls who  offer everything from keepsakes to food was transformed into an African fest with live music from a massive stage and market stalls selling African wares.

The event was hosted by broadcaster Henry Bonsu with lots of great music, food and fashion.

Now its second year, the Africa centre Summer festival is an annual event that aims to bring together Africans in the capital for a day of fun and entertainment while showcasing the best the continent has to offer.

If you missed this year’s event, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the sights we scooped on the day.
