We kick off in fine style as Latino Life Incubator present an unmissable programme of panels, networking and showcases, celebrating the very best of the UK’s Latin music scene. Catch a packed line up of talks during the day followed by a showcase and afterparty in the evening.

Then in February, Soumik Datta Arts curate a multi-platform exploration of what it means to be a refugee with The Green Room Festival and fast-rising Brighton quartet The New Eves swing by with their spellbinding collision of folk, punk and drone.

Celebrate the days getting longer with not one, but three, boundary-pushing festivals in March as Certain Blacks present four days of music, cabaret, live art and more with Soul On Ice and AWAN 2024, the UK’s only Arab female-led festival, returns for a landmark tenth edition. Plus, celebrate Black excellence with a riveting programme of networking sessions, talks and screenings at TNB XPO 2024 courtesy of The New Black Film Collective.

This Spring also marks the launch of Roots and Endz – a co-curated project and series of events exploring contemporary South Asian culture and the intergenerational, intersectional impact of colonisation supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Join us on the sofa as DON’T SLEEP ON US present Borders – a living room-style space for nuanced discussion and performance. And get set for non-judgemental chaat, chat, open-mic and, of course, henna, as The Hen-nah Party returns.
