Community Feedback

The drums helped people to move their body. “It helped me to dance”

We travelled from Liverpool to come and watch the carnival for the first time after hearing about it on Seani B’s show on radio 1xtra on Thurday night. We came with our 2 girls and my mum and had a lovely time, the atmosphere was great and the food was lovely at the Hudawi centre. The only bit of feed back i would give would to have something for the kids to do at the Hudawi centre like face painting or something for them to join in with but we enjoyed the day time
