MOST READ

Stroud embraced National Refugee Week, celebrating the talent and contribution of asylum seekers and refugees with a sell-out concert at Stroud Brewery.

The programme offered a sparkling array of musical performers from around the world.

Acts included the magical, relaxing music of Maryam from Iran playing  the Persian setar, a Tibetan prayer song and dancing from a Tibetan family in full traditional Tibetan costume and a talented Ukrainian singer Oksana. Meanwhile Palestinian chef Anis provided a veritable Middle Eastern feast for concert goers.

Doina Cornell, Stroud’s Migrant Champion, spoke at the event, saying: “National Refugee Week’s theme this year is compassion. I’d like to thank asylum seekers and refugees in Stroud District for enriching our lives with your presence in our community. We have shown that we are a place that welcomes and supports with compassion those seeking refuge.”

The concert was supported by Stroud District Together with Refugees, Stroud against Racism, Mid Gloucestershire Amnesty Group and Stroud Stands with Ukraine
