Events Calendar

LOVE-Africa is a charity gala evening of African music and dance with performances from Black Voices and Frititi, close-up magic from Von Majik and an African art exhibition.

It promises to be a superb evening with a great programme of entertainment and a great alternative to a traditional Valentine's dinner.

Black Voices are the UK's leading female a cappella quintet. Established in 1988, they have steadily built an international reputation for delivering inspiring, quality vocal performances.

Frititi's performances include high-energy traditional African dances, each accompanied by the musical instruments and costumes authentic to their country of origin.

Multi-award winning urban magician Von Majik will be performing his close-up tricks in the cafe foyer and an African Art Exhibition by Neil Spilman (not the turner nominee) will be on display.

One of Neil's paintings will be auctioned on the evening. The aim of the evening is to raise funds and awareness for Seeds for Africa.

Seeds for Africa is based at the University and helps African families and communities by the provision of seeds, agricultural equipment and relevant technical advice, giving individuals and communities a future, not just a temporary answer. See the Seeds for Africa website for more information:
