Live from the Oxford Fairtrade Fortnight Fair

As part of Fairtrade Fortnight, we’re at the Oxford Midcounties Co-operative Fairtrade Fair, featuring a fashion show, free Shrove Tuesday pancakes (yum!) and chocolate tasting with a delegation of Ghanaian farmers from the Kuapa Kokoo plantation are visiting with Divine Chocolate.

We were also treated to some African drumming – we’ll try and get a couple of clips up on here!

Later in the day, we got to hear from Harriet and Fatima, two Ghanaian producers from the Kuapa Kokoo cocoa co-operative who travelled over to speak at some of the events during Fairtrade Fortnight – and after that everyone was treated to some (fantastic – and incredibly loud!) African drumming from the Joliba drummers. Photos below, a video imminently – and the second instalment of the Revolver World podcast will feature some of the sights and sounds from the event, including an interview with Fatima and Harriet. Check back soon for all those goodies yet to arrive.
