On Thursday 12 July Faisal Rashid, MP for Warrington South, returned to host the popular ‘An Evening of Cultural Diversity’ event at Walton Hall and Gardens. The evening was a huge success with over 250 people taking their seats in the special DADs marquee.
Held in association with Warrington Disability Partnership, the event took place during DAD 2018 week, bringing together a range of cultures for an evening of entertainment and good food.
Thanks to generous sponsorship from a local business, Faisal was able to announce that the event would be free for all.
The multi-cultural evening featured an impressive line-up of entertainment. Performances throughout the evening honoured cultures and nationalities from across Asia, Africa and Europe. With traditional and contemporary dancing, musicians and singers, each performance was exceptional and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Food on the night was provided courtesy of Cinnamon Lounge on Sankey Street in Warrington.
The evening’s charity raffle prizes included vouchers for a complimentary Leisure Day pass for a family of four, an overnight Bed & Breakfast stay for two, both at The Park Royal Hotel in Stretton, and a signed bottle of House of Commons wine donated and signed by Faisal Rashid MP. The money raised from the raffle is being donated to Warrington Disability Partnership.
Faisal Rashid MP said:
“I am delighted that so many people came along to this fantastic event to appreciate and value the rich diversity of our town.
“By bringing many of our communities together and creating an environment where people can enjoy the different cultures within Warrington, I believe this event has been a great way in helping to strengthen the bond between our communities.
“I would like to thank all of the acts that took part in the evening and everyone involved in the execution of the event and a big thanks to everyone at Warrington Disability Partnership for their work to ensure the event was such a big hit.
“It truly was a great evening of enjoyable entertainment, delicious food and great company.”
