London, UK – The vibrant and culturally diverse neighbourhood of Brixton is set to embrace a new tradition as it prepares to host the city’s inaugural Fet Gede celebration. On the evening of November 4th, Studio Z Brixton, located on Coldharbour Lane, will come alive with vibrant colours, lively music, and a rich cultural heritage as the London community commemorates this revered Haitian festival.

Fet Gede, also known as the “Festival of the Ancestors,” is a significant observance in Haitian Vodou culture. The festival, which typically takes place from November 1st to November 2nd, honours the spirits of deceased loved ones, celebrates their lives, and seeks their guidance and protection. This year, Londoners will have the unique opportunity to participate in this meaningful event.

Organized by the Fet Gede Committee UK and The Haitian Heritage Group UK, the Fet Gede celebration promises to be a spectacle of art, music, dance, and spiritual reverence. Studio Z Brixton, a vibrant public space known for its community gatherings, has been chosen as the venue for this auspicious occasion.

The event will kick off at 6:00 pm, with a colourful procession led by traditional Haitian drumming style, known as “Banda.” Dressed in elaborate costumes and carrying symbolic artifacts, participants will pay homage to the spirits of the ancestors as they make their way through the streets of Brixton.

Upon reaching Studio Z Brixton, attendees will find an array of stalls showcasing Haitian arts and crafts, traditional cuisine, and cultural exhibitions. From vibrant paintings and sculptures to handcrafted jewellery, the event will provide a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the rich artistic traditions of Haiti.

As the sun sets, the central stage will come alive with a variety of performances, including traditional dances, live music, and theatrical presentations inspired by Haitian folklore. Local and international artists will captivate the audience with their skill, energy, and passion, creating an immersive experience that will transport attendees to the heart of Haitian culture.

The Fet Gede celebration is not only a time for revelry but also an occasion for spiritual connection and reflection. Throughout the event, there will be opportunities for attendees to participate in spiritual ceremonies, led by experienced practitioners who will guide them in honouring their own ancestors and seeking their blessings.

The Fet Gede Committee UK hopes that this inaugural Fet Gede celebration will not only bring together the Haitian community residing in London but also foster cultural exchange and understanding among the diverse population of the city.

The event is open to all, and organizers encourage Londoners of all backgrounds to attend, learn, and appreciate the richness of Haitian culture. Whether one is familiar with Fet Gede or discovering it for the first time, this celebration promises to be an enlightening and enriching experience for all who participate.

Remember that Fet Gede is a sacred and spiritual event for the Haitian people. Approach the ceremony with respect and mindfulness and be open to learning about their beliefs and customs. Purple and black are Gede colours but white can also be worn. Be creative with your costumes.

Mark your calendars for November 4th at 6:00 pm and head to Studio Z Brixton on Coldharbour Lane to be a part of London’s first Fet Gede celebration. Prepare to be immersed in the sights, sounds, and spirituality of Haiti as the city pays tribute to the ancestors in a colourful and joyous evening of celebration and cultural exchange.
