    Comments Off on The Osiligi Maasai Warriors

    The Osiligi Maasai Warriors arrive in Newcastle this September – a terrific tribal group all the way from southern Kenya.

    Their first major concert in the area will be held at Newcastle Cathedral on Thursday, 14 September where families can enjoy an educational show looking at the intriguing lives of the Maasai.

    The Warriors tour has gained the support of a small UK charity, Osiligi Charity Projects – and, collectively, they have utterly transformed their local community in recent years. A new primary school, medical centre, water station and orphanage has been built with the funds. It’s a great cause and it’s a brilliant, educational journey to take the whole family on in Newcastle this autumn.

  10. Osiligi Maasai Warriors visit Newcastle Cathedral

    Comments Off on Osiligi Maasai Warriors visit Newcastle Cathedral

    The Osiligi Maasai Warriors, a performing tribal group from southern Kenya, are set to visit Newcastle Cathedral on Thursday, September 14.

    Osiligi Maasai Warriors Newcastle Cathedral

    The group has toured north east schools and churches with great success in recent years but this will be their first major city concert in the area.

    The evening is great family entertainment – and educational, as the show also looks at the lives of the Maasai and the group does a Q and A session with the audience.

    The Warriors tour has also gained the support of a small UK charity – Osiligi Charity Projects – and, collectively, they have utterly transformed their local community in the last seven years. A new primary school has been built for 200 sponsored children; there is a new medical centre and orphanage; and a solar powered water station which serves the wider community.

    TO BOOK TICKETS VISIT: https://osiligi-maasai-warriors.eventbrite.co.uk

    Unreserved seating. Doors open 6.30pm. There will be a short half-time interval.
