Melanin Poppin

“Black British history is history as well as Black.” -David Olusoga

We recognise that Black history is a history interconnected and so is not limited to a month or a time but has its roots interwoven within stories of pain, struggle, strength and beauty.

MELANIN FEST creates a space to showcase talent, discover what it means to be Black and British, explore a rich and vibrant culture and be proud of a deep and vast heritage.

Come share this with us. 


This is our festival.
