Umoja Arts Network are organizing a weekend of activities to showcase the best of African and Caribbean music, art, food and culture, supported by the Bournemouth Town Centre BID.

The organizers will be making contact with local businesses shortly to discuss further, or you can contact the BID on and we will put you in touch.
