GREENHEAD Park is to host a weekend musical spectacular.
A World Together on Sunday, July 13, is a new event for Huddersfield featuring music, dance and crafts from around the world.
The family event replaces the Mela, which has been held in previous years.
There will be different performance spaces in the park where visitors can have a dance or listen to music, stories and songs from folk to gospel, Bhangra to tea dances.
The DanceFloor will feature the Ragroof theatre group, showing some of the great dances from the 20s, 30s and 40s, and, for those who need it, teaching the steps so that participants can all get up and have a go at tripping the light fantastic themselves.
Ragroof will be joined by local groups Africa for All and Manasamitra.
On the MusicStage there will be Skavolution playing their mix of skiffle and reggae ska music, The Masti Dancers, Silinder, supported by his Bhangra band Pardesi, Mighty Zulu Nation, Shubhra and a fashion show sponsored by Suits Me.
In the SongSpace Satellite Arts will tell stories from around the world, joined by the Seventh Day Adventist Youth Gospel Choir, folk musicians from North Kirklees and EcCo, a choir of young people and families from the Colne Valley.
One of the highlights of the day will be the Have A Go Marquee, where visitors can make jewellery, paint on silk, watch weaving, make masks, hold rainforest animals, practice their circus skills and much more.
Starchaser from Manchester will be showing families how to make their own space rocket and launch it into the stratosphere. From Huddersfield to the stars!
Clr Liz Smaje, Kirklees Council’s Cabinet member for leisure services, said: “A World Together is a family event where visitors, young and old alike, can come along for a day packed with activities and entertainment.”
