The Armchair Traveller with Nottingham Black Archive
Saturday 28 May
14.00: Walk and tour
16.00: Recreation of the ACFF Soca Market at Primary
A whistle stop tour of the Black presence in the NG7 area of Nottingham from the earliest point in time to the present day with Nottingham Black Archive. Stories will be told through poetry, music, film and drama by members of the Nottingham community, including the first generation of Caribbeans to settle in Nottingham during the 1950s.
As part of Nottingham Black Archive’s tour there will be a fantastic opportunity to journey back through time and celebrate one of the most influential Black organisations of the 1970s. Come peruse the ACFF (Association of Caribbean Family and Friends) popular Soca Art Market. A reconstruction of what once was a well-liked annual event including craft and book stalls and a range of speakers.
Book your place on the walk here. The market is open to anyone to drop in.
This event is part of ‘The Armchair Traveller’ as part of the The Grand Tour Fringe Programme.
