The borough is set to embrace a number of acts as it prepares for Black History Month.

Loacl singer Janet Kay, the Queen of Lovers Rock, and Victor Romero Evans will be performing at the Dugdale Centre, in London Road, Enfield this week as they gear up for the celebrations next month.

Organised by Enfield Borough Council, the month will celebrate the heritage of black history and will include performances from comedian Stephen K Amos and ‘The History of Black People in Britain’ amongst a variety of events.

Councillor Rohini Simbodyal, cabinet member for culture, sport youth and public health said: “It’s fantastic to see Janet, who lives in Edmonton, and Victor introduce us to this year’s packed schedule of event for Black History Month.

“There really is something for everyone in the programme, with comedy, speeches, music, dance and theatre. Make sure you check out the events and book early as some of the shows will sell out extremely quickly.”

Cllr Yasemin Brett, cabinet member for community organisations said: “Through the wide range of artistic and cultural events held during Black History Month in Enfield, there is an opportunity to discuss, explore and celebrate the history and contributions of our black communities.

“Black History Month gives a focus and greater visibility to these issues and their importance and is an opportunity for everyone to get involved.”
