The Africa Centre Summer Festival ( will be taking place this Saturday (18th August 2018).

The central section of Great Suffolk Street will be closed all day (from Ewer Street to the junction with Webber Street), along with sections of a number of adjoining streets.

The festival is a free-entry, live music, performance, food and cultural arts event (see website for further details).

The organisers don't seem to try particularly hard to notify / warn local residents that this event will be taking place. Having become aware of it only on the day last year I attended briefly, and it was very well-staged, but not particularly well attended. If you live nearby you will certainly hear it on the day if last year is anything to go by!
