Melting Pot Festival 2017

Melting Pot Festival 
Saturday 20 May 2017 from 12PM - 5PM
New Art Exchange

NAE's annual food and culture festival returns, this year with a focus on social issues around food. Join us for an afternoon full of the diverse flavours found around us in Hyson Green and Nottingham, as well as workshops and performances for all the family. With Women's Culture Exchange, Ecoworks, Himmah and many more local independent businesses and community groups, we present food from all around the world: Africa, Middle East, Caribbean, Asia and more.
