What is FestivALL?

FestivALL is a month dedicated to celebrating the diverse and welcoming communities in Gloucestershire.

As well as a calendar of simple ideas of how to include more people where you live, where you socialise or at work, there will also be events happening across the county you can join in with.

FestivALL aims to break down barriers in our communities across ethnicity, faith, ability, sexual orientation, class, age and gender and create opportunities for us all to discover more about the people, wildlife, places and organisations in our area.

FestivALL is all about coming together, talking, sharing and celebrating – but most of all, having fun.

FestivALL is taking place in July 2019, across Gloucestershire.

The events listing is coming soon!

The FestivALL vision:

To bring communities together to celebrate and to inspire inclusion, in and around Gloucestershire

FestivALL’s aims:

To promote inclusion – what it means and how we can all get better at it

To learn from one another and to form lasting relationships to take forwards

To collaborate across, and breakdown barriers between: ethnicity, culture, faith, ability, sexual orientation, class, age and gender identity

To provide a platform for organisations and community groups to celebrate together

To generate and share good news stories about people joining together in and around Gloucestershire
