Organisers of the sixth 1 Big Multicultural Festival in Ipswich are searching for a Suffolk act to join the line-up for this year’s extravaganza.
The free event in Alexandra Park celebrates Ipswich and Suffolk’s diverse cultures and backgrounds with dance troupes, live music, sports, market stalls and food.
Now organisers are offering one Suffolk act the chance to join the on-stage festivities for the opening 12pm slot on Sunday, September 4.
Organisers said the move would allow the event to “truly reflect the aim of music from all around the world”.
The annual festival organised by the Bangladeshi Support Centre regularly attracts more than 8,000 people, with the aim to bring cultures represented in the town together.
