MELTING POT FESTIVAL 2017

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.
