A vibrant and fun afternoon of acknowledging and celebrating Black History directly in the heart of Brighton: an event for people of all ages. Doors open at 2pm and there will be a Gospel music performance by Kingdom Choir prior to the official welcome by Cllr Simon Burgess and the launch of the logo competition. Following this there will be a West African Dance and Drumming Performance. Throughout the afternoon there will be various activities, the majority of which will take place outdoors.

The programme of events for Black History Month 2006 in Brighton & Hove is almost ready...

This is an opportunity for all organisations that support the aims of Black History Month but are not in a position to put on events themselves to publicly demonstrate their commitment.

One page of the programme will be headed: "Wishing you every success for Black History Month"
We still have space to add logos under this heading, from various organisations willing to make a financial contribution. 10,000 copies of the programme will be produced.

Please act fast if you are interested

For a minimum donation of £50 we will include your logo in the programme of events for Black History Month 2006 in Brighton & Hove. The size of the logo appearing in the programme will be approximately 3cm x 4cm.
