BACK AT IT: Africa at Spitafields

POP UP Africa are back with their flagship event, Africa at Spitalfields.

On Bank Holiday Monday 29 May 2017, city dwellers have the chance to experience (and purchase a bit of) Africa without leaving the capital, as they take over East London’s iconic Spitalfields E1 Market to host the much loved event for the 5th year.

The one-day market takeover will consist of stalls selling produce and cuisine from all corners of the African continent, with everything from art, literature, clothing, handcrafted dolls, instruments and interior décor to name a few.

The Africa at Spitalfields programme also includes live entertainment such as different genres of African dance, live music, storytelling and much more, bringing together people from all walks of the community.

Visitors can sample some of the best that the African food scene in London has to offer from Ghanaian Street food by chef and writer Zoe Adjonyoh of Zoe's Ghana Kitchen, vegetarian vegan Ethiopian food by Ethiopiques, Malagasy food by Lemur House, Nigerian Tapas by Chuku's, Afro-Brit fusion burgers by Gambian and former chef at London's infamous Ivy restaurant, Papa L plus more.
