Don't miss this one! Enjoy music and dance from around the world at this one day free festival in Bethnal Green, East London. Every summer, for one day only, the Museum grounds and neighbouring Museum Gardens become a hive of activity with a rich line up of live bands, dance troupes, DJs, carnival processions, theatre, workshops, stalls and food. An exuberant celebration of the diverse talents of London's new communities.

Praxis Community Projects, a charity based just across the road, created the festival six years ago to promote the important work they do providing support, guidance and training for vulnerable migrants across London, empowering people to sweep away the barriers in their path and enabling them to play a full part in London’s social, economic and cultural life.

New Voices Festival brings together many cultures and communities through their festival, bursting with new music, dance, culture and positive energy from around the globe. See you there!
