MUSIC, dance, food and fun were the main ingredients at an international community cultural day in Sheffield.

The event took place at the Sheffield and District African Caribbean Community Association - SADACCA - on Wicker.

Members of different communities from across the city came together to find out more about each other’s cultures and celebrate the diversity of cultures living in Sheffield.

Coun John Campbell, the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, was special guest at the event and officially opened the festivities.

Milton Samuels, SADACCA management committee chairman, said: “We were proud to host the community cultural day for the eighth year running.

“This event aims to promote a greater respect and cohesion between communities within the city, through shared understanding of our different cultures.

“We welcomed all communities to the event, which was a day of fun, learning and networking between communities.”

Among the activities on offer was a karaoke competition, talent show, fashion show of traditional dress, food from all over the world, art and craft displays and a community information stall.

There was also poetry, story telling and face painting for children.
