The Trowbridge Cultural Festival of Food is coming to the Longfield Community Centre on Saturday 16 September. The free to enter festival, aims to bring the whole community together through traditional foods.
Helping create harmony within our communities, the festival will allow residents to foster an understanding of the different communities, helping prevent and reduce Hate Crime and Anti-social behaviour.
Homemade traditional food from around 15 countries from as far afield as South America, Asia and continental Europe will be on offer to tempt your taste-buds, all cooked by members from the many diverse communities living in and around Trowbridge.
There will be a number of free activities for children including a bouncy castle, Henna and face-painting and Active Trowbridge will be running a number of activities on the day.
Local firefighter crews from Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, who continue to work in collaboration with the community, will also be joining us. They will be on hand promoting their cadet, apprenticeship, volunteering and recruitment schemes as well as discussing all aspects of fire safety.
Wiltshire Police and their Diversity and Inclusion team will be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have. The team continue working closely with the community to attract, recruit and retain BME police officers and staff into Wiltshire Police, ensuring that they are inclusive and reflective of the community they serve, along with being equal opportunity employers.
Entry to the event is free but a small charge of 60p will be requested for each taster portion sampled and Taster Tickets will be available when people arrive.
Doors open at 2pm and the event will provide a platform to promote culture, understanding and promote education about ethnicity.
