East Herts Council celebrates diversity in the district with free event
Diversity in East Herts will be celebrated with a free event at Rhodes Arts Complex in Bishop's Stortford on Sunday (September 15).
Organised by district council chairman Cllr Jonathan Kaye, 'Living Together in East Herts' will feature music, performances and a chance to chat to people from a variety of world religions, including Judaism, Islam, Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism and the Baha'i faith as well as Christianity.
There will be activities for children and short performances by community groups including people with disabilities.
Hertfordshire police will be there to discuss how officers try to combat hate crime.
Councillor Kaye said: "Pop in for an hour or so, taste some cultural food and see artefacts from a variety of religious communities. You can find out more about diverse communities in East Herts and then have some further refreshment in café.
"This is the second event from the Living Together in East Herts group. I'm delighted that we've been able to build on our first event in Ware last November with more groups and activities for visitors to enjoy."
The event takes place in the arts centre in South Road, Bishop's Stortford, on Sunday, September 15 from noon to 4pm.
