For the second year, Latin Voices Live! returns to Brighton, with a new adult-only Latin party Dead Late at Brighton Museum (7 November) with dancing, cocktails and performance, free children's bilingual storytelling at Jubilee Library (2,4,9 November) and a Family Day at Brighton Dome, Museum & Jubilee Library (9 November).
Cynthia Marin Jimenez, Coordinator for Latin Voices Live! and member of Writing Our Legacy said:
"This is our most ambitious programme to date for Latin Voices Live! and we are very happy to be working again with the museum and Dome and this year the library to provide lots of free activity for people of Brighton and for the Latin community who call Brighton their home."
There are also two special free-entry Afro-Caribbean music and food themed evening events at Jubilee Library, as part of the library's Black History Month programme, both complete with Caribbean food.
Cuthbert Williams MBE, Chair of Brighton Black History, member of Black History Month and Writing Our Legacy added:
"It's such a pleasure to see all of the different ethnic communities in the city taking part in this year"s programme.
It's a real testament to the hard work of the volunteers to make Black History Month as inclusive as possible, and I hope everyone in the city feels welcome to come to our events."
