Event description: Oswestry CultureFest is on Saturday 17 August 2019 in the centre of town, coinciding with the Shropshire produce market, celebrating the wide cultural diversity in Oswestry and the surrounding area.

Not only ‘mainstream’ culture but diversity which is less often celebrated such as alternative lifestyles, disability, sexual orientation, faiths and beliefs, ethnicity and age. The day is about highlighting some of the local minority cultures, enhancing their day-to-day visibility and inclusion – celebrating differences as a positive contribution to Oswestry’s vibrant community.

The event will include food tasters from different countries, Bulgarian dance, Bhangra Dance, hopefully some Welsh clog dancing, creative workshops, and much more! The whole event is free to the public.

Shropshire Disability Network and Safe Place Shropshire will have their stands at this event.  Come along, find out about what we do. Click here for a list of our eventsSDN-Dates-Events-for-August 2019 -Master

Your future safety was important to us then and we would love to hear how you got on. The management team, many of whom have been around since Crucial Crew started, will be on hand to say hello.

It is also a chance for Crucial Crew to say thank you to everyone that has been involved with the event and we hope to showcase a number of the professional contributors. We will also use the occasion to acknowledge the financial support of many local concerns and trusts who have made this remarkable achievement possible and a valuable asset to Shropshire schools.

The British Ironwork Centre is a top tourist attraction and Clive Knowles and his team are welcoming our charity and all our supporters for the day, free of charge. Refreshments will be available.
