Between 1pm and 2pm there will be a chance to make Indian desserts with the Bake Off star, while between 3pm and 4pm there will a chance to try your hand at making Turkish desserts with a local chef.
There will also be face painting and plenty of music and dance through the day, which runs from noon to 4pm. Fruit beauty

The event is the second for the Altogether Stronger project, aiming to ease tensions between community groups and promote cohesion.
By offering a fun way to celebrate diversity and increase understanding, the project hopes to take steps towards building a
stronger community where everybody feels they have a place.
