The upcoming bank holiday weekend isn’t just about the Diamond Jubilee of course – although we do have lots of Jubilee events lined up. Visitors to the Albert Dock can enjoy a bumper programme packed with free events as part of The Tide is High weekend. There’s lots to do but Vikky Evans-Hubbard from the International Slavery Museum has one recommendation:

“As part of the special events this weekend, Ghanaian Youth Association dance group will be treating audiences to a vibrant and inspiring performance of traditional Ghanaian dance.

This group of dedicated young people with a passion for art and culture have worked hard over the last few years to improve their dance and drumming skills which showcase Ghanaian cultural entertainment. This dynamic group are proud to be constantly learning new skills and enjoying dance culture activities, while entertaining and teaching others whilst raising funds for charity projects, including supporting an orphanage in Ghana.

The group has been very active in the past years and have taken part in several community and social events in Liverpool and other areas in the North West, including the Lord Mayor’s Pageant, which saw the young people exhibiting their colourful costumes and Sankofa headdress and the St George’s Day celebrations at the Liverpool Town Hall, where they impressed the audience with several exuberant dance performances!

Ghanaian Youth Association dance group will be performing as part of ‘The Tide is High’ weekend, at the International Slavery Museum on Saturday 2 June and Sunday 3 June between 12.30-2 or 2.30-4pm.”
