Organisers of Ug@50,UK; the events to celebrate 50yrs of Uganda’s independence in London, have confirmed more details about the October 13th event that will be held at The Hippodrome, Golders Green.  Below is the Official Schedule:

The team that had a lengthy meeting over the weekend and also film for the Uganda Vision TV program, says the program will include a Joint-Faith Prayer Hour that will bring together Ugandans and religious leaders of different beliefs for an hour of prayer and thanksgiving with religious and inspirational music performances.

The Joint-Faith Prayer Hour will also be attended by the Ugandan High Commissioner to UK and Ireland HE Joan Rwabyomere, accompanied by other fellow diplomats from other countries. She is also expected to deliver her celebration speech afterwards.

They world music star will be teaching children (and adults) traditional Ugandan music and dance which a select group of children will perform in the auditorium later in the day. There will, however, be a £5 charge per child for the activities,

“This little fee is purely to facilitate some of the things we are putting together for the little ones,” the event coordinator Jaffar Suleiman Hussein explains.
The social and business networking follows the prayers with business exhibitions for an opportunity for businesses and organisations to showcase their wares as well as individuals catching up. A few business stalls are still available.
