Africa on the Square returns to Trafalgar Square for the fourth time on Saturday 27 October.

This popular event continues to grow, with over 25,000 attending last year. It celebrates African arts and culture, as well as enhancing Black History Month.

We'll be hosting a stage with live entertainment and there will be an African market, food stalls, roaming entertainment and lots of fun stuff for kids, showcasing communities from across the continent.

The Mayor organises and supports lots of different events to celebrate the many cultures and communities of London. 

More information on this to follow.
