Black Girl Festival is the UK's first one-day festival celebrating Black British women past, present & future with arts, workshops, panels, a marketplace, food market & entertainment for all ages.

The day long festival will commence at 10am till 11pm with a full programme of arts based activities for women and girls exploring what it means to be a Black woman in the UK.

Black Girl Festival is a venture by Paula Akpan, co-founder of the ‘I’m Tired’ Project and social media coordinator for gal-dem, and Nicole Crentsil, founder of Unmasked Women. 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.
