Join us to honour our founders through dance, music, African drumming, song and a spectacular scouse-cook-off! Sunday 29 October 2023 we are presenting performance by friends old & new. Celebrate with us the re-birth of our 35-year partnership with IRIE! dance theatre – who through their new work Groundation, will share dance, live drumming and percussions. The next generation of performers delve into the traditions and heritage that have shaped contemporary African and Caribbean dance.
