This year marks the 20th anniversary of Refugee Week and we are celebrating at our very own Library of Sanctuary with Stories and Celebration. With storytelling and poetry from Writers Without Borders and Bearwood’s own Gavin Young, these will be brought to life through puppet and mask-making workshops for all ages. Plus a buffet lunch from around the world. All proceeds for Bearwood Action for Refugees.
This promises to be a really great evening…and it’s open mic so if you’ve got something to say…
