MELTING POT FESTIVAL 2017

20 May 2017, 12pm - 5pm

New Art Exchange

NAE's annual food and culture festival returns, this year with a focus on social issues around food. With Women's Culture Exchange, Ecoworks, Himmah and many more, join us for an afternoon full of the diverse flavours found around us in Hyson Green and Nottingham, as well as workshops and performances for all the family. As we share and learn about food from across the world, why not pay it forward by bringing something for our food bank?
