The line-up for this weekend’s 1 Big Multicultural Festival has been finalised.

West London-based Bollywood performer Tasha Tah has been added to the programme alongside Suffolk singer songwriters Kelly Pritchard and Kev Walford.

The event, which takes place in Alexandra Park on Sunday, combines live music, dancing, street food, stalls and activities celebrating the cultures represented in Ipswich.

Other highlights lined up include a demonstration of the Kabaddi sport, funfair and five-a-side football tournament.

A spokesman from organisers the Bangladeshi Support Centre said: “This will be the sixth annual 1 Big Multicultural Festival and usually attracts around 8,000 people, young and old, and celebrates the diversity of Ipswich and indeed Suffolk.”

The free event is supported by the Arts Council and the festivities kick off from 12pm.
