If you’re flying into London Gatwick Airport and you’re looking for some culture, then don’t miss Africa on the Square 2015. Pick up your Easirent hire car from our London Gatwick Airport depot and head to London’s iconic Trafalgar Square on 10 October 2015.
Africa on the Square is a free event, and is one of London’s largest festivals of African culture and heritage. The day promises to be an action-packed, fun-filled festival, that will keep all ages entertained.
The festival, which is part of London’s celebrations of Black History Month 2015, was launched in the city in 2014 and proved an instant hit, attracting over 20,000 visitors to the festival site. This year, the Mayor of London, who has organised the celebrations, has promised that it will be bigger and better than last year’s event.
Expect live music, African dancing, entertainment, market stalls specialising in an array of different wares, African food and drink, workshops and a fashion show on a specially constructed runway in the centre of Trafalgar Square.
There will also be plenty going on to keep the little ones entertained, with special stalls and tents set up packed full of activities for children. You could even take them along to see the spectacular acts that will be in attendance at this year’s festival, including singers, drummers, acrobats and dancers.
Why not make a weekend of it and check in to one of Easirent car hire’s top London hotels? Or maybe even dine in one of Easirent’s favourite London restaurants?
