Get ready to kick off Black History Month this year with the groundbreaking event Blacktoberfest! Hosted by none other than the amazing Lady Phyll, this extravaganza will celebrate and commemorate the contribution and culture of Black and queer communities.
Get ready to dance the night away with an amazing host of DJs, be captivated by an array of speakers and spoken word artists, and be wowed by a selection of performers. Taking place at Between The Bridges on 7 October from 6 pm, Blacktoberfest is set to be a hub for community engagement with vendors and stalls showcasing the talent of our Black queer community.
Lady Phyll, who will be hosting the event, can’t wait to open the doors. “Blacktober Fest is about ‘Celebrating Black Queer Culture’,” she told DIVA. “I’m super excited to announce another flagship event which UK Black Pride are hosting. This Black History Month, UK Black Pride is bringing its LEGACY to Between The Bridges, where we will celebrate the vibrant tapestry of Black queer culture, an event not to be missed!”
The lineup so far includes the Mother of Afrorave, Toya Delazy, UK rap and hip hop duo He/Hymn, drag sensation Kiki Snatch and a sensational performance from The Cocoa Butter Club.
