New Voices Festival
A day of live music and dance from global artists, children's activities, food and craft stalls, a Peabody-run Wellbeing Area, plus much more, is coming to Bethnal Green on Saturday 30 June.
Now in its 5th year, the New Voices Festival is a celebration of the diverse migrant communities of east London, attracting more than 6,000 people to last year's event (pictured).
Entry is free and confirmed artists include: DJ Cal Jader (as seen at Glastonbury, the Big Chill and Bestival), Eritrean singer Miryam Solomon, the London Bulgarian Choir, the Krar Collective (as seen at WOMAD), Soothsayers, Wara, and the Magic Tombolinos.
There will be a Children's Area with games and crafts, and our own Wellbeing Area where visitors can:
- use our Digivan to get online and learn more about computers and technology
- find out about our gardening activities
- enjoy some free massages from qualified therapists
- meet representatives from The National Literacy Trust
The Peabody-sponsored festival is run by Praxis, a local charity providing support, guidance and training for vulnerable migrants across London.
