Shrewsbury’s Cultural Diversity Day 2013
Shropshire Council, in partnership with local organisation Shrewsbury Action Against Racism (SAAR), is holding the seventh annual Cultural Diversity Day in The Square in Shrewsbury town centre on Saturday 6 July 2013 from midday – 4pm.
This year’s event promises to be as vibrant and exciting as previous years, with the Oswestry Street Band, belly dancers Bedouin Shiver, a Jewish Klezmer Band and Chinese Lion Dance all performing in The Square throughout the afternoon. The event will be supported a range of agencies representing Shropshire’s diversity, including the Rainbow Film Festival, the Senior Citizens Forum and Shrewsbury Interfaith Forum, to name a few.
This year SAAR worked in partnership with students from Shrewsbury Sixth Form College and Mount Pleasant School to produce a promotional poster, and raise awareness of the event among children and young people.
Mike Owen, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member responsible for diversity, said:
“Cultural Diversity Day has become an event that people look out for each year, as it brings something different to the town and represents the true diversity of Shropshire.”
