Black Girl Fest 2019

10:00 am - 7:00 pm | 12 October 2019
Business Design Centre | £13.20 - £125

Black Girl Festival is a venture by Paula Akpan and Nicole Crentsil. Both are passionate about celebrating and championing Black women and wanted to create a festival that showcases London’s talented creative community of Black British women.

The theme for Black Girl Festival 2019 is ‘Taking Up Space’

This year, we want to break down barriers and create new seats at the table. From tech, literature to hair and beauty, we want to take up space across various industries and champion inclusivity.

Alongside carefully curated talks, workshops and masterclasses, we’ll be hosting a marketplace, exhibitions, live performances, screenings and more.

If you are a Black woman or girl and are unable to afford the cost of a ticket, please email us at with your full name and ‘Free ticket’ and we will provide you with a free ticket. Children under the age of 4 go free.

Ticket prices: Adult (16+) £27 (+BF); Child (4-15) £13.20 (+BF); Adult Pay it Forward* £54 (+BF) and Group of 5 Adults £125 (+BF). Available from eventbrite

*The ‘Adult and pay it Forward’ option means that you’ll be paying for your own ticket and covering the cost for another black woman or girl to attend.
