Caribbean Christmas

Part of Winter

Warm up this winter with traditional music, stories and performances from the Caribbean that are typical during the festive season.

We kick off the day in The Clore Ballroom with guest poets and artists performing pieces about the holidays in the islands and celebrating West Indian traditions in the UK and abroad.

Stick with us as we move to Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer after 3pm and pump up the tempo – and the party – Caribbean style.

Presented by Just Vibez.
