Summer has officially come to an end after a longevity of heatwaves, frozen bottles of water and melted foundation. It’s finally time to welcome back our English weather with a smile of chattering teeth and wave goodbye to your autumn/winter blues before they even begin. Life is way too short to be locked up at home, complaining for over three hundred days about how summer needs to return so you can go back out again. Get some gloves, a nice parker jacket and hit up your group chat as we have found some events that can get you out and about. Clubbing doesn’t have to be the only attainable motive this season. Scroll down to find the perfect event for you to attend.
The UK Black Business Show gives you an opportunity to connect, gain knowledge and to be inspired by black excellence. This will be a perfect event for you if you’re lacking motivation, don’t know where to start or need extra ideas. Guest speakers will range from various fields including culinary, fashion, hair & beauty and so many more to come. Success doesn’t come without challenges and these topics will be discussed, in order to show the reality of being a black business owner. However, if they can do it, then you can do it. Sign up and join the 1000 attendees this Black History Month.
It’s never too cold to crack a smile
