This event grows on an initial pilot, held in March 2019 where we united people from 18 different cultural and linguistic backgrounds across the town in a well-attended and energetic event held at a local school. Our first event attracted between 800-1000 people and we are aiming to double that in September, bringing together disparate and often isolated sections of the community together to celebrate and share language and culture.
Following the success of the March event, we have established Rainbow Makers Community Interest Company Limited by Guarantee, company number: 11994620 to build on our joint efforts to promote the joy of learning languages and discovering different cultures with local families.
We were humbled by the number of community groups that gave their time and talents so generously at the event in March, and now even more would like to take part in the September event. The entry to the festival is free of charge.
