Nottingham Refugee Week 2019





Arts and Culture


A festival of music, theatre, dance, film, literature, art and food celebrating the contribution of refugees to our city. Check our website for the full events listing!

As part of International Refugee Week 2019, we welcome you to join us in the Council House Ballroom, Market Square (in between the lions) on Saturday 15 June from 14.00 – 17.00 to recognise and celebrate our diverse community.

Come and join us for a taster of what Refugee Week has to offer! Live music from local bands and artists, delicious food from around the world and a drumming workshop and art activities for children (and the young at heart!).  There will also be an opportunity to find out how you can support local organisations and have your photo taken in our photo booth pledging to one small act for refugees.

Booking is not required – just turn up at the Council House and our volunteers will point you in the right direction!
