Gypsies, the world’s travellers originally from Asia, with no land, no home, no permanent work, adapted to diverse lives, but preserved their spiritual, cultural and physical identity through music, amongst the best-loved, and their ‘mysterious’ life filled with controversies, passion, provocative, dominated by love, death and rejections, the best symbolised in the music of Carmen and the Balkan’s challenging pipe smoking ladies. But what do we know about Gypsies? Why their music and dance warm hearts and people wish to experience “freedom” rarely denied to Gypsies? The presentation of their cultural heritage, identity of these old migrating people, is timely and energising during Covid-19. This event is free and for all ages, engaging local communities, business and media, which will draw the audience, users of services and sponsors, to benefit socially, educationally, economically, from promotion of their industries and in active participation in this highly attractive local event.

What we'll deliver:

  • Music event on the stage in Bishops Park
  • To hire stage, sound system and chairs
  • Bring stalls for cold food and non-alcohoic drinks and souvenirs, books, other merchandise

Why it's a great idea:

The aim is to introduce Gypsy group to other local communities. We received positive encouragement to propose a free public music event in the multi-ethnic LBHF and to claim support from the media, businesses and other ethnic minorities. It is an important breakthrough in communities’ integration and inclusion of the Gypsy groups without prejudices, misinterpretation as it is little known about their qualities, history, mistreatment and the present cultural-socio-economic situation. Gipsies are also good entertainers, businessmen, one of the oldest whose trade transverse the world in exchange for goods and they passed the knowledge about other cultures and resources. It is our aim to work culturally against discrimination and to enable local people to forge new friendly contacts, invite local authorities, charities, businesses and individuals to engage in the regeneratio process of the Gypsy minority and to enjoy their music and cultural heritage, an important part of local diversity.
