We appreciate everyone getting in touch about the festival this year. As you can imagine we’ve had lots of queries since the plans to lift restrictions across the UK were announced!

We’re monitoring the situation day-by-day and consulting with both local authorities and our peers in the cultural sector with regards to what kind of event we can bring you this year. As is stands, the plans set out by the government are still just a ‘best case scenario’ and much is still unknown as to whether large-scale public gatherings will be able to take place safely and in what capacity.

We’ll of course keep you posted with any plans as soon as they become concrete, so keep an eye on our social media over the coming months, but please do not book anything in terms of travel or accommodation at this stage.

Many thanks for your continued support of Africa Oyé – and do tune in to our online monthly shows on our Youtube Channel whenever you need to scratch that Oyé itch! https://africaoye.com/nyumbani/
