It was marked in Stroud at a packed event at the Trinity Rooms, organised by Together With Refugees, Stroud District.

Stories to entertain and provide food for thought from many countries including Kazakhstan, Ethiopia, Iran, Malaysia, Ukraine, South Sudan and Syria. 

There were stories of love and loss, wit and wisdom, fables, myths, legends, brilliantly brought to life by the two performers. A delicious vegan Somali supper from Bristol-based Somali Kitchen was also on offer and enjoyed by all.
