In the midst of sadness let us be joyful, in the midst of division let us show unity, in the midst of hate let us show love. In doing so, we are heaping burning coals on the heads of the enemy!

It is an honour for CultureTree to be part of Westminster City Council’s inaugural #MyWestminster Day taking place on Sunday 18th June at Paddington Recreation Ground. The event marks the #GreatGetTogether, where neighbours get together as part of a national celebration of everything we have in common in memory of Jo Cox MP.

Following Jo Cox’s horrific murder in June 2016 and the recent tragic attacks in Manchester, London and around the world by a group perpetuating hate and terror, #WeStandTogether! This event and many more planned across the city is a chance for us to showcase our diverse neighbourhoods, cultures & faith and what makes London such a vibrant city. It’s a chance for us to show that we stand for unity & peace!

The event is free! There will be free food tasters from around the world, live entertainment & lots of free activities for the whole family.

CultureTree will be providing entertainment on the Band Stand. We are so excited and looking forward to the event!

Here’s a video of what you can expect from us on the day.
