WHAT NOT TO MISS THIS SEPTEMBER 2018



Can you believe we are well into the last quarter of the year!? As we reach the end of the first week of September. Here are some of my top picks of what not to miss this month. Enjoy! 

AFROPUNK LONDON| 3 – 8 SEPT

This year Afropunk London are taking over Brixton with Talk Series, Battles of the bands and more during this first week of September. Afro punk is an arts and music festival that celebrates and unifies a number of cultures from the African diaspora through multiple mediums. The festival originally started in Brooklyn, New York. The closing events  will take place this weekend at Electric Brixton and The 02 Brixton Academy with the likes of British music legends DJ Spoony and Jazzy B at Electric Brixton this Friday and Saturday. Be sure not to miss it!

Showcasing the city’s creativity, the two-week festival is back with many shows under its umbrella to choose from. With Design Fair, districts, installations and the London Design Biennale, Londoners are spoilt for choice of potential social gatherings spaces throughout the month.

 #SALONETWITTER: CHANGING NARRATIVES ‘MEET & GREET’ | 21STSEPT
In my native country Sierra Leone, a collective of inspiring creators have come together to create #SaloneTwitter. On a quest to change the narrative the platform aims to promote, support and patronise products and services from the country by Salone citizens both home and abroad. #SaloneTwitter is working to be a network and directory for both Sierra Leonean Twiter users and Twitter users based in Sierra Leone.  On Friday 21st#SaloneTwitter are hosting their first ‘Meet and Greet’ event at O’Casey’s where there will be panel discussions, vendors and more. If you’re interested fill this application to attend the event. 


OKTOBERFEST| 21stSeptember to 14thOctober 
All this time I assumed that this event would start in October, apparently not! The official dates of the beer fest in Germany are from the 21stSeptember to 14thOctober. Oktoberfest is one of the world’s largest Volkerfest celebrating Bavarianculture since 1810. Find out more about the annual festival here.
