A feast of multiculturalism is set to return to Hatfield as part of a popular council event.

World Culture Day will take place in White Lion Square between 11am and 3pm on Saturday, June 23, and will showcase a variety of cultures from across the world.

Visitors will be able to get creative and make Asian embodied art on a baseball cap, listen to stories from around the world in Hatfield Library, and enjoy arts and crafts at King’s Community Church.

There will also be live music and stage performances from Lawrence Hill, choir Open Heavens Christian Centre, Bollywood dancing group Albans Bollywood and street dancers FK Dance Academy.

A passport scheme will also return, which involves residents getting it stamped as they sample different cultures from stalls across the event.

Councillor Bernard Sarson said: “Hatfield’s World Culture Day is about celebrating different cultures from all over the world, giving visitors the chance to get involved with some hands-on activities.”
