What we are about:
The first Yeovil Together event was collaboratively organised by the ethnically diverse community groups in Yeovil. The aim was to bring the whole community together to enable intercultural dialogue through music, dance, storytelling and the sharing of food so that barriers around ethnicity and culture could be diminished. It showcased the positive contributions of Yeovil’s ethnically diverse communities and facilitated conversations around diversity and inclusion
