Global foods and dance help celebrate Diversity Day in Bromley
PUBLISHED: 07:00 19 October 2013
Guest speakers, Tai Chi dance and a performance from Bromley Council’s own staff choir were among the Diversity Day festivities at Civic Centre last week.
Local schools gathered to perform alongside Magpie Dance Adult Group, as well as the Bromley Asian Cultural Association who treated their audience to a jago dance - ordinarily reserved for weddings.
Guests were welcomed by Cllr Tim Stevens, executive for public protection, and heard from mayor of Bromley, Cllr Ernest Noad, as well as the council’s chief executive, Doug Patterson.
The day was brought to a close with a selection of foods from around the world, and a series of displays from a number of volunteer and community groups.
