Refugee week finds new home
Refugee Week Calderdale and Calderdale Neighbours’ Day have joined forces to present a combined event.
Refugee Week Calderdale – Neighbours’ Day will take place on Sunday June 15, from 11am to 4pm, at People’s Park, Halifax.
“Both events share similar aims of bringing Calderdale’s diverse communities together to share in a fun, family day where people can celebrate and learn more about what each community can contribute to Calderdale as a whole. So it seems like a natural ‘marriage’,” said Refugee Week Calderdale’s Audrey Smith.
After the closure of the Piece Hall, Calderdale Neigh- bours’ Day was looking for an alternative venue, while Refugee Week Calderdale was seeking to develop a larger scale event than previously.
The event will feature live entertainment showcasing local talent, a community market place, plus lots of interactive sport, and art and craft activities for all ages.
