Over 2000 people attended the Piece Hall in Halifax where Refugee Week and the Great Get Together were celebrated.
It was organised as a partnership between the Piece Hall and Calderdale Valley of Sanctuary – a network of organisations and individuals supporting experts by experience (asylum seekers and refugees).
There was a free hot meal given out by four different kitchens – each with two choices – so 8 different types of meals from different parts of the world. When 800 meals had been given out there was nothing left.
The performances were also from around the world – with live music, songs and poems. Children were dancing in specially prepared performance – ending with everyone being able to dance.
Special thanks go to the four cooking teams, to the performers, to the organisers but not least to the Piece Hall that provided all the infrastructure to make it such a successful day.
