<b>We will secure the relevant permission or licence as and when required. In the unlikely event that we cannot secure them, no monies will be collected from our backers.</b> This will be a multicultural event taking place in an open area in the Hounslow high street. The event will involve Somali, Arab, East African, East European, White & Asian communities to promote unity and community cohesion. The setting of this event will be like a mini Mela. We will involve professional singers, dancers, musicians and artists to promote the event. We will conduct auditions at various venues to bring talented people together from across all sections of the community and provide a platform to exhibit their talents. We will create awareness amongst the young and old about the best traditions of diverse cultures and build a sense of pride in their cultural heritage. In this way, all communities collectively will build togetherness & rich culture for British society.

Refugee Week Summer Festival
Refugee Week Summer Festival joined Our Hounslow1 month ago

Our Refugee Week Festival will take place on the 23rd of June, at Lampton Park, from 10am - 8pm. This family-friendly event will welcome attendees from across the diverse communities of London in support of refugees and in celebration of open dialogue and positive community cohesion. We hope for a large attendance as all comers to the festival will be welcome. The one-day event will be a celebration of the cultural richness and diversity embedded within West London, as well as the skills and unique cultural capital that migrants and refugees bring to the area. Our festival will showcase the diverse cultures of our community through traditional Central Asian musical, dance and theatrical performances, sporting tournaments, a fashion show, as well as diverse food and craft stalls. We will also be hearing from some of our members, who will be sharing their own inspirational stories during the event.
