Carlisle Unity Festival
Connecting Communities - Celebrating Diversity
Saturday 8th July 2017, Carlisle City Centre
Carlisle Unity Festival is one of the key annual events for all communities in Carlisle and the surrounding area. Building on the success of the first Carlisle Unity Festival which took place in August 2016, the Festival builds unity, promotes integration, fosters good relations and celebrates all that we have in common as residents of a diverse and vibrant city.
Based in the city centre on the day, the Festival brings together a range of community groups, public and private sector organisations. Working together they share their knowledge and information with the general public in an informal, fun and welcoming environment.
AWAZ Cumbria, Carlisle One World Centre, Op Shops and other partners invite you to take part in the Carlisle Unity Festival on Saturday 8th July 2017 between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.
This year Festival is supported by Carlisle City Council, Cumbria County Council, ASDA Foundation, Cumbria Community Foundation and CN Fund.
The main programme will take place between 10 am and 4 pm on Saturday 8th July 2017 in the City Centre and Old Town Hall with complimentary world music acts and entertainment taking place in the nearby Old Fire Station and other city centre venues in the evening.
This year more than 20 organisations and groups representing activities in the community, along with cultural or national groups and statutory organisations will have the information stand under gazebos, with workshops taking place in a marquee, in the city centre.
