London celebrates Africa on the Square
The Embassy took part in the annual Africa on the Square, which was colourfully celebrated in London’s iconic Trafalgar Square on 14th October.
It celebrates the best of what Africa has to offer – delicious cuisine, clothing and music – as part of Black History Month.
Present on the occasion was Mr Ababi Demissie, Deputy Head of Mission, and staff from the Public Diplomacy and Diaspora sections.
This year saw an increase in stalls, showing the evolving interest in African culture in the UK.
Beyond the shopping and delicious food, there was an array of performances from singer Josh Tenor, DJ’s, dancers and a vibrant parade. A fashion show from Africa Fashion Week LDN also lit up the stage, with an selection of stunning garments from African designers.
Ethiopia and Ethiopian Airlines were featured in the Voice Newspaper’s “Africa Celebrates”, an annual publication written in conjunction with the event.
The publication is available on request by email and hard copy. Please email the Public Diplomacy Department via the Contact Us Form.
