Sankofa Stage

Sankofa is an ancient symbol of the Akan people from Ghana that teaches us to look to our past for inspiration and guidance for the future. Sankofa’s is a venue that is designed with this meaning firmly in mind.

It is immersed in the roots and shoots of acoustic folk, blues, jazz and roots music from around the world. It is a blissful late night retreat away from the mayhem – once you have discovered it, you will find it hard to leave!
