Free event: The Mayor of Lewes presents… Time for Change: Action not Words

Following the success of the first Black History Month closing event at Lewes Town Hall in 2021, the Mayor of Lewes is hosting an event called Time for Change: Action Not Words on October 30 2022 at 5pm in the Assembly Room in Lewes Town Hall (Fisher Street entrance).

You are invited to join us for a free evening of reflection, discussion, and celebration as we approach the end of Black History Month, supporting the theme for Black History Month Time for Change: Action not Words.

We will be welcoming special guest poet and activist Rick Dove from South-West London. In addition, there will be a panel discussion hosted by Patrick Nyikavaranda, a director at Diversity Resource International. The panel includes Brighton-based poet/spoken word artists Priss Nash and Annie Whilby, Lewes-based Vandu Languages’ Deputy Director Aaron Clarke and retired professional footballer Victor Anichebe.

Food will be available at the interval and event will culminate with a musical drumming performance.

The event is free, but you must register via Eventbrite to attend. Book your space before tickets sell out!
