About the Event
Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, the dance weekend has been postponed. We are hoping to reschedule for summer but will, of course, follow government guidance.
Come to this year’s Spring Pan-African Dance weekend in East Sussex over the May bank holiday 7th-10th May 2020. This is a chance to go back to honour the land and dance and drum in honour of our ancestors. We’ll be moving out of the city to New House Farm, set in 12 acres of English countryside which includes luxury shared accommodation, outdoor heated pool, gardens, giant hot tub, private walks along the banks of the river Rother and in private woodland, as well as a wildflower meadow and paddocks. This beautiful space will be our home for a weekend of sharing and celebrating culture from the motherland, Mama Africa. We gather to give thanks to her spirit and honour those who came before us. Families welcomed of all ages. If you have any questions or are wondering how to get involved, email me.
The programme will flow as the weekend unfolds but expect drumming and dance from different communities across the African continent, as well as music workshops, walks and wonderings in the woodlands and maybe a dive in the pool (weather permitting).
