Long story short

African Activities was born out of Kwame’s refusal to accept the distorted image of Africa portrayed in stories and media here in the UK. Our mission is to restore the balance, dismantle stereotypes, and tell our own stories.

We use the continents creativity as a launching pad to dive deeper into the richness of our heritage. Our commitment is to bring authentic artistic expressions of Africa to the UK and beyond.

At African Activities, we take immense pride in our highly skilled practitioners. Our team consists of gifted, reliable, and experienced practitioners who are CRB/DBS checked and insured. Hailing from Ghana, Guinea, and Senegal, our diverse background allows us to offer much more than just drumming. We also provide a wide range of workshops, including arts and crafts, singing, dancing, storytelling, and art.

Join us on this transformative journey of exploration and celebration!

All workshops aim to introduce positive views of Africa and challenge stereotypes. Activities are unifying, adapting to the differing abilities of those within the group.

We are deeply proud of the service we provide
