Under bright blue skies, visitors enjoyed a range of activities, including traditional Indian dance, African drumming and performances from reggae, rap and urban musicians.

There was also the opportunity to learn more about some of the many religions that are followed in Welwyn Hatfield, including Islam, Buddhism and Bah�'i.

With Stanborough’s south lake providing a picturesque backdrop, the smell of jerk chicken and curried goat filled the air, making for a truly multicultural atmosphere.
