“Our vision is to use the occasion to highlight the vibrant multi-culturalism, harmonious inclusivity and equal opportunities that encapsulate contemporary Britain. The festivities include music, dance, cuisine, stalls, parades and anything and everything else that brings communities together and unites people. In addition, we hope that we can highlight how migration enriches society through the various art forms of the many migrated communities and with a strong focus on commonwealth countries”, said a press note from the association.
