The sounds and rhythms of carnival are heading to Letchworth this weekend thanks to a garden city-based community group.
Black Voice Letchworth are a cohort dedicated to celebrating, uplifting and protecting the black voice in Letchworth, Herts and beyond.
The inclusive group puts on a free dance class for their BVL team, comprised of those aged between three and 17, which meets each Sunday at Mrs Howard Memorial Hall.
The troupe will dance a Soca-mash up - Soca being a style of Afro-Caribbean music - on Saturday, August 28 between 2pm and 3pm in Leys Square.
The dance is the first of many events to raise profile and much-needed funds for the UK's First Black History Museum Library and School of Culture and Creative Arts - one of Black Voice Letchworth's main projects in creating safe and educational spaces for black culture, heritage and opinion.
