Hyndburn's vibrant community will be celebrated at a special event taking place on Sunday 16th June (10am - 4pm) at Haworth Art Gallery and Park, Accrington.

‘Connecting Cultures' returns bigger and better for a second year. Marking National Refugee Week, Eid celebrations and Father's Day the event promises a fun-filled day out for all, with free live performances, activities and exhibitions.

Set across the whole park and gallery grounds performances will take place on a stage within a large marquee and in various pop-up tents. People are invited to browse community and business stalls, an artisan market, and pop-up's, including the famous Finch Bakery desserts.

There will also be free henna art, friendship bracelet and puppet making with Spring Into Action, heritage games led by the Friends of Haworth Art Gallery voluntary group, as well as the chance to visit the exhibitions and world famous Tiffany Glass collection within the Gallery itself.

The event will also host a free-to-attend main stage showcasing a number of incredible performances including Tai Chi, a musical theatre performance from Just Imagine UK supported by Activ8 Lancs, an interactive dance performance from DanceSyndrome, poetry reading and a Bollywood fusion dance demonstration and workshop.

A council spokesperson said: "Connecting Cultures is all about bringing local people and communities together to celebrate the great diversity we have here in Hyndburn.

"We have a jam-packed day of free activities and performances for all the family to get involved in, there is something for everyone and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the Haworth Art Gallery for a day to remember. Make sure the date is in your diary!"

To transport visitors to the event, a free heritage shuttle bus will take people from Accrington Town Square to Haworth Art Gallery throughout the day. The Haworth Art Gallery car park will be closed on the day of the event and those attending are encouraged to take advantage of the free bus and use public transport where possible. On-street parking around The Gallery is limited and visitors are asked to be mindful of resident and emergency vehicle assess when parking near-by.

A day packed full of activities for all the family, those attending the event, organised by Hyndburn Borough Council, are being urged to book a table in advance for Haworth Art Gallery's popular Gallery Kitchen, offering delicious locally sourced food and drink. To book a table or to pre-order your picnic box from the Gallery Kitchen, call: 01254 491660.

There will also be an incredible line-up of activities taking place throughout the week in the build up to the event, with more details to be announced in the coming weeks.
