Africa Utopia festival at the Southbank Centre
The Southbank Centre’s Africa Utopia festival returns for its eighth year (13-15 Sep), continuing a mission to showcase the continent’s cultural landscape. As ever, the Southbank Centre will push open every window that human culture has to offer, including music, theatre, literature, fashion and debate. British Olympian Denise Lewis will be part of a panel discussing protest in sport (14 Sep), while there’s a free fashion show that’s set to subvert African conventions (14 Sep). All weekend there will be an indoor market selling clothing, homeware and art.
