The Miss Botswana UK beauty pageant was planned to be a part of our celebration each year of Botswana Independence but as the level of interest has not been very high we run a fashion show instead but if anybody is interested in taking part in this beauty pageant in 2016 please let us know at the Botswana Community UK facebook page.
INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS
The celebration for 2015 is at Mama Jumbe’s African Restaurant in East London (350 Katherine Road, E7 8NW) on Saturday 3rd October! Naturally it includes cultural food, cultural entertainment and a cultural fashion show but for details please see our facebook event.
In 2014 it was a fashion show at Arista Bar in West London! We celebrated Botswana’s 48th year of independence with much gusto! You can see some pictures from the event on our Botswana Community Page.
In 2013 it was a fashion show! We celebrated Botswana’s 47th year of independence at Mama Jumbe’s African Restaurant in East London (350 Katherine Road, E7 8NW) on 5th October! We provided some of Botswana’s traditional dishes and enjoyed music by Lorraine Lionheart (www.lorrainelionheart.com) and other Batswana artists. DJ Twinzz Molebatsi was playing Botswana music! World of Beauty ran a fashion show of Touch of Africa Fashion with designs by Sela. See more details at the facebook event here . . .
