Celebrating Sanctuary London

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The annual free festival which launches Refugee Week returns to the South Bank with a profusion of new talent, including the dazzling Krar Collective from Ethiopia, one-man folk orchestra Rory McLeod, young virtuoso vena player Hari Sivenesan, the glittering harp collaboration "Home is Where The Harp Is" and nu-skool Roma singer Kerieva.

Now in its twelfth year Celebrating Sanctuary London celebrates the art of refugee communities in the UK, and once again its three stages - the Book Slam at Celebrating Sanctuary Yurt, the all cooking, dancing and eating Hot Shoe Cafe Stage in the Sunken Gardens and the Sanctuary Collaborations Stage down by the Riverside – will be pulsating with the sounds of live music, the flow of spoken word, the sizzle of food and the rhythms of dance - the cultural fruits of sanctuary.
