What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Celebrate is our volunteer-led community Festival - and so much more than just a one day event.
Everyone can get involved!
An integral part of our richly diverse community for 17 years: bringing together different ages, cultures, community groups, musicians, performers, schools & service providers - sharing news & showcasing achievement. We connect people, encourage participation & provide access to a wide variety of information & activities enabling more people to get involved & shape their community.
Our theme this year is Light up your Life!
Celebrate the talent, diversity & resources of Whalley Range & surrounding areas
Promote a positive image of the area & improve the quality of life
Encourage participation of the different communities within the area
Work in an anti-discriminatory & inclusive way.
