This year’s Festival was no different; we were treated to traditional Somali, African and Afghan dance; listened to songs from around the world; rocked to the beat of the Steel Drum Band; and enjoyed show-stopping performances from our performing arts students.
An abundance of stalls filled the Atrium and corridors, with world food and free hair and beauty treatments on offer. MhIST, Smile or Hope and a selection of other charities also attended.
The sports hall hosted a football tournament, with all proceeds being donated to charity, whilst the LRC screened short films throughout the day, including the Oscar-winning ‘The Silent Child’.
Human Libraries and Dementia Memory Workshops further stressed the vital importance of Equality & Diversity.
Huge thanks to Peter Griffiths, Becky Davison and the E & D Champions for making the event possible – the Diversity Festival continues to grow year-on-year and this was the biggest one yet!
