Entertainers are lining up to perform at this year’s Unity Day to help us celebrate Hammersmith & Fulham’s diversity.

The event at 11am on Sunday 11 June will begin with a march from Shepherds Bush Green to Ravenscourt Park where performers and speakers will take the stage.

It follows last year’s event which saw thousands march against a rise in reported hate crime.

“Last year’s march and celebration of our diversity was so popular, we decided to make it an annual event,” said H&F Mayor, Cllr Michael Cartwright.

“Whether you were born in H&F or moved here from overseas, why not join us and help us celebrate the many different cultures which make up our borough.”

Like last year, marchers will gather in Shepherds Bush Green before setting off down Goldhawk Road at 11am. The route will take them down through Hammersmith before they arrive at Ravenscourt Park.

They will then be treated to speakers from community groups and performers from around the world.

Highlights will include:

The event is the finale of the borough’s annual HF ArtsFest which is backed by H&F Council. More than 200 events will be taking place between Friday 2 June and Sunday 11 June.
