ticafLivingstone is continuing to mark David Livingstone’s bicentenary when it plays host to a wealth of nations at the first ever Livingstone International Cultural Arts Festival – an occasion which will be rich in atmosphere, with all the different influences here in Africa, plus Caribbean calypso, it will make for a wonderful eclectic mix of cultures gathering here over these two days in June.

 

 

There will be a tremendous cacophony of music, drums and dancing on the Friday as the Street Carnival winds its way slowly up through the centre of town to the Golf Club where live bands will play in the evening, and on the Saturday there will be more performances by the participating cultural groups, with arts and crafts, food stalls, and national pavilions showcasing their own countries and much more.

As part of this rhythmic occasion, we will be inviting the community to come along, bring a drum and join in on the Saturday afternoon and join in The African Beat prior to the Prize Giving and Finale. Bring or make a drum and come and join us on Saturday. We invite the whole community to get involved. Bring or make a drum and come and join us on the Saturday.
