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 Gardens next to the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green are transformed into a riot of music, colour and creativity when it hosts the New Voices Festival.

Praxis Community Projects, a charity based just across the road, created the festival 5 years ago to promote the fantastic work they do providing support, guidance and training for vulnerable migrants across London, empowering them to sweep away the barriers in their path and enabling them to play a full part in London’s social, economic and cultural life.

Set in the heart of the East End of London the festival is an exuberant celebration of its many diverse cultures and communities with music and dance from around the globe, children's activities in the gardens and the Museum of Childhood, food and craft stalls, and much more.
