“A Celebration of World Music, Arts & Crafts, Food & Drink” is promised in Stamford on August Bank Holiday Monday, August 31st.

The Stamford Diversity Festival, organised by the Stamford Anti-Racism Group (SARG) will be a free, open access, family event.

The aim of the Festival is to promote Unity through Diversity and SARG is expecting people to enjoy the festival from across South Kesteven and Rutland.

With this in mind, SKDC has awarded a £5,000 grant to help organise the event, as previously reported by Nub News.

It will be a Celebration of World Music, Arts & Crafts, Food & Drink & Community Interest Stalls.

It will take place on the Stamford Recreation Ground from 11am to 6pm.

Tala Tarang are a local harp/ tabla duo and will be first on the stage.

Stamfordian Eleanor Turner is one of the UK's most cherished harp talents, forging a unique and varied path through her life in music.

Mendi Singh, one of the UK's most celebrated tabla specialists today has collaborated with artists such as Pundit Shalil Shankar, Peter Gabriel, Take That, Akram Khan, Courtney Pine.

In 2015 he composed the world's first Tala Tarang Concerto. So far, as a duo they have performed concerts in London, Birmingham and Lincoln.

Tāla Tarang, means Rhythm Waves, which aptly sums up everything about this duo and their music as each performance takes both audience and the artists on a journey; like the oscillations of a wave.

SARG Events Coordinator, Yvette Diaz-Munoz said "We are thrilled to have received £5000 SKDC Community (Events) Funding to cover the basic costs of the festival including the bands. People from all over South Kesteven are encouraged to attend what looks set to be a really fantastic day!"

Tāla Tarang are "hugely excited to bring a brand new set to the inaugural Stamford Diversity Festival"
