Evening of African music and dance in Lewes

Vibrant music, a warm atmosphere, plus wonderful food and drink will be on offer at a summer evening of African music and dance in support of human rights.

The event is on Saturday, July 13, and is the third themed music and dance night organised by the Lewes Amnesty International Group to raise funds for its campaign work. This year’s event will feature the music of Zimbaremabwe, a music collective – led by Zimbabwean musical force Linos Wengara Magaya – who have featured at music festivals like Womad and Glastonbury.

The band members play traditional Zimbabwean musical instruments.

Previous Lewes Amnesty music and dance nights have been sell-out events, so organiser Helen Winters urged people to buy tickets early.

The evening of African music and dance will take place at the All Saints Centre in Friars Walk from 7.30-11pm and tickets priced at £10 (£7 concessions) and can be purchased in advance from Skylark in The Needlemakers or on the door on the night.
