Presented by Hyde Park Picture House, this powerful and transporting film is the acclaimed debut by musician Ahmir Questlove Thompson and includes never-before-seen concert performances from stars including Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone and Sly & the Family Stone.
For six weeks in the summer of 1969, just 100 miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). It was an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. After that summer, the footage was never seen and largely forgotten â€“ until now.

Dave Spikey: A Funny Thing Happened: Thu 26 August
Funny things happen all the time. Normal events don’t catch the eye but Dave’s special radar instinctively draws him to the small, out-of-the-ordinary events and conversations that wash over most of us and pass us by. Once identified, he applies his unique style of exaggerating and elaborating them, whilst reminding us that we too have not only witnessed them, but it’s also probably happened to us! It’s this added dimension, this comedy of association that elevates the event to laugh-out-loud funny.
Soap From The Box Live: Tue 31 Aug Wed 1 Sep
Over two evenings City Varieties will welcome stars of Coronation Street, Emmerdale, EastEnders and Hollyoaks in conversation with and hosted by the creator of hit podcast Soap from the Box, TV Director Lee Salisbury andÂ Emmerdale and Hollyoaks icon, Sheree Murphy.
