• Harmony Day at The Florrie

Harmony Day celebration to take place at The Florrie

A celebration of diversity in Liverpool is taking place at The Florrie in Dingle to mark World Harmony Day.

The event, organised by Liverpool Homeless Football Club with funding from LCVS (Liverpool Charity and Voluntary Services) and support from Liverpool City Council, aims to promote racial equality in the city.

Taking place from 10am to 4pm on 21 March, the celebration will include performances from African Gospel singers, African drummers, Irish dancing, Nordic music, Bollywood dancing and workshops, football and food from various cultures.

Organisations taking part in the event include the Merseyside Congolese Association, Sheila Kay Foundation, Merseyside Police, the Royal Navy, South Liverpool CAB and Irish Community Care.

Steve Barton, engagement officer for Liverpool Homeless FC, says: “It concerns us that people may be discriminated against due to their religion, culture, position in society, sexuality or disability.

“I believe as a city we can come together as one to stop this happening under our noses, we have a great chance to lead the way in Liverpool for other cities to follow.

“We are lucky enough to be supported by some wonderful agencies who can also offer support and advice on various issues.”
