The biennial Afrovibes Festival returns for an extensive national tour following 2010's inaugural UK dates. More than just a show, Afrovibes 2012 offers an eclectic and thought-provoking programme of performance from South Africa and beyond, including theatre, dance, music and spoken word. In addition, tour venues will host Township Cafes with authentic African fare plus debates, post-show talks, late night music and workshops. Produced by UK Arts International who brought The Harder They Come to the stage, the Afrovibes 2012 festival travels to London, Birmingham, Wales, Manchester, Liverpool, Hereford, Lancaster and Nottingham.
