IN A NUTSHELL

London's original African family adventure! With live music, cinema, dance, games, workshops and the best of vibes...

GO ON...

Each month we feature a different live act with African connections, DJ Sets from Rita Ray and Max Reinhardt, African cinema with introduction and Q&A’s led by Andy Jones of Screen Station. Lucy Angell John’s dance session for kids lasts all afternoon along with the Oware Society’s non stop playing of the oldest board game in the world, Oware as played in Ghana.

People talk, dance, clap, cheer, drink, eat, and share a celebration of African culture.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A different live music act each month: 

Feb: Abdoulaye Samb -  guitar fuelled mbalax  from Senegal

Mar: ASYA SATTI TBC - funked up blues from Sudan via Sweden and UK 

Apr: AFRICAN BOY / Family Atlantica TBC Naija

Family activities, stalls from Open the Gate The African Market, Dom’s CD Stall, face painting and portraiture and other surprises on a monthly basis. The Richest Mix at Rich Mix for sure!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

'If it was open all the time I’d spend my life there'

'I don't think I’ve ever encountered such a welcoming, generous, inclusive event… we bloody love it'

WHY DOES RICH MIX MATTER?

'It's an oasis where community still matters, where local voices can be heard and where local artists and practitioners from all over London can find a space and a platform for their work'
