A celebration of community and diversity comes to Arnold next month with the Arnold Summer Fair, an inclusive and multicultural event featuring live music, creative workshops, performances, stalls and more.
The event, organised by Gedling Borough Council, takes place on Saturday, June 24 from 11am until 5pm at Arnot Hill Park, Arnold.
Midlands Melanin Market will be bringing a range of stalls showcasing the works of African and Caribbean artists and makers and there will be a number of community and charity stalls, street food traders and arts and craft activities for residents to enjoy.
Skate Nottingham will also be holding a skate jam at the skate park at Arnot Hill Park for both new and experienced skaters to take part in.
The multicultural themed celebration holds a particularly special significance this year as it coincides with the 75th Anniversary of the Windrush arrivals and will be an opportunity for residents to embrace diversity and celebrate the vibrant multicultural heritage of the area.
Stall holders and food traders can book a place at the event by visiting www.gedling.gov.uk/Arnold-Fair
Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke MBE said;
“The Arnold Summer Fair is a fantastic opportunity for our communities to come together, celebrate our diversity, and enjoy a day filled with entertainment and culture.
I’d like to encourage as many residents as possible to come and join us for this event, to find out more about our diverse communities and enjoy the variety of activities taking place here at one of our stunning parks.”
