About this Festival:

Bring on the Sunshine (BOTS) has hosted a family day festival since 2010 which typically sees 3-5000 people attend each year. The schedule on the day includes a full musical stage line up, a market place with diverse and artisan items, and workshops such as drumming, dance and more.  Although 2021 will be a bit different we look forward to sharing with you the warmth and vibrancy of African cultures!

The BOTS festival is a platform for entrepreneurs showcasing approx 80% black vendors  and 20 % other. We aim to use our platform to support our Black, African and Caribbean community businesses with an unparalleled opportunity to showcase their goods to both the community AND to other festivals and events that occur throughout the summer.
