We run an exciting and extensive programme of events on a variety of topics for audiences with an interest in Africa. The majority of our events are open to the general public. Our programme of events include regular talks, book launches, and events run in partnership with other organisations. We hold an Annual Lecture and two highly popular festivals, Africa Writes, the UK’s largest literary festival focused on African writers and their readers, and Film Africa, our annual celebration of African cinema.
