Plymouth Respect Festival 2013


12/10/2013 to 13/10/2013

The Plymouth Respect Festival is designed to promote respect and celebrate diversity across all areas of the community.

The festival is organised by the Plymouth and Devon Racial Equality Council and hosted by Plymouth University in 2013.

Since its launch 16 years ago, the festival has traditionally taken place every October, although it took a break in 2012. In previous years, the festival has included parades in the city centre, live music, dancing and theatrical events, play activities, world food, information stands and many showcased events.

There will be two days of free entertainment surrounded by great world food at the World Food Market behind the Roland Levinsky Building. Visitors will have the opportunity to sample a global cuisine and delicious delights on Saturday (11am-8pm) and Sunday (11am-5pm).

Keep up to date with developments and the full programme via the festival website.

The festival will start with a procession lead by Great British Carnival's Rhythms of the City, who will be playing samba-drenched funk and soul from The Guildhall to the University from 10.30am on Saturday. The group will also be at the finale on Sunday.

Performers include

There is also an opportunity to visit the University's Immersive Vision Theatre to "Explore the Universe Without - and Reflect on the Universe Within" (12 and 13 October).
