A food festival that aims to bring communities together is taking place in Trowbridge on Saturday September 7.

The Trowbridge Cultural Festival of Food is once again being held at the Longfield Community Centre in Weavers Drive, Trowbridge from 1-3pm with taster tickets at 60p each available.

The free-to-enter festival, aims to bring the whole community together through tasting a wide range of traditional foods from different cultures.

Organiser Farzana Saker said: "Helping create harmony within our communities, the festival will allow residents to foster an understanding of the different communities, helping prevent and reduce hate crime and anti-social behaviour.

"Homemade traditional food from around 10 countries from different cultures will be on offer to tempt your taste-buds, all cooked by members from the many diverse communities living in and around Trowbridge."

There will be a number of free activities for children including a bouncy castle, henna and face painting and Active Trowbridge will be running a number of activities on the day.

Local firefighter crews from Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, who continue to work in collaboration with the community, will also join in the fun. Wiltshire Police local PCSOs will be present to engage and talk to the community members.

Doors open at 1pm and the two-hour event will provide a platform to promote culture, understanding and promote education about ethnicity.

Taster tickets will be available at a cost of 60p each when people arrive.
