A dive into the African culture
Lidcombe will host its annual Africultures festival the 12th of March. The party will be thrown from 11am to 6pm in the Wyatt Park on Church street. If you don't know anything about African cultures, then you should not miss out on a good opportunity to go have a look around. If you already know a bit, then you just might grab a train, a bus or a catapult and join the festival goers.
The goal is to bridge gaps between African and Australian cultures. So come on everyone and let yourself be tempted to try home-made food, watch traditional dances and be submersed into African music, drums and vibrations.
For the very first time, a story time will be organised from 11.30 to 12.30. It will allow to some African writers and poets to read their own stories. Don't miss out and come early! You will also find some dance workshops on the Serengeti stage.
Plus, Africultures is a festival accessible for parents with prams, seniors, people in wheelchair and is located near the Lidcombe train station for more comfort. Come along, it is easy, and join in.
