Multicultural Festival Splendour

Young boy playing tog of war.Without a show from the sun the people of Burngreave and surrounding area weren’t to be deterred from flocking into Abbeyfield Park on Sunday 11th July 2004.

Again the vibrant sound of diversity in music and many voices, of fun, joy and games marked the annual multicultural celebration of rich diversity belonging to the community of Burngreave.

Green Top Circus trapeze acts entertained the many, while football contained those outside the dance hall tent. Workshops, included samba bands, drums, DJ workshops and face painting, combining with continuous stage acts throughout the day.

Thanks go out to all the Green City Action members and volunteers who have worked hard to make this event a success enjoyed by so many.

Even if you missed it on the day you can still get a taste of the many musical flavours from the main stage (courtesy of Sheffield Indymedia and Commedia) by downloading the mp3 files from the website below:
