The Dover Together: Multicultural festival aims to bring the diverse communities of Dover together to celebrate and explore diversity. Showcasing the rich variety of cultures which make up Dover, the festival gives people the chance to hear new music, try new foods, dance and art, and to learn about other cultures as well as to celebrate traditional British culture, and to see the positive impact that diversity can have on the town.
Last year Samphire brought together over 700 residents of Dover, to celebrate and join together in its second multicultural festival The day included cultural performances from local school children, music from local migrant groups, workshops such as African drumming, Chinese dancing and circus skills, belly dancing and African drumming – all from Dover and its environs. Visitors could sample, and buy refreshments from a range of international food stalls, and find out about what local charities and organisations are doing in the area by visiting their stalls.
We are happy to announce that we will again be holding the Dover Together Multicultural festival on Saturday 29th June 2019. See our event calendar for details
As the festival gains momentum each year, we hope it will become embedded as one of Dover’s annual events.
