Gurvinder Sandher the Artistic Director of Cohesion Plus commented “I am pleased that the Fusion Festival will launch our 2013 summer and autumn programme of activity. We are very grateful to Arts Council England for their on-going support which has allowed us to develop this exciting new event which will showcase emerging artistic talent from different genres including Alternative Rock, Bhangra, Comedy, Calypso, Gypsy Folk and African Pop. We are working with a number of new artists for the first time and believe that we have developed an innovative stage programme which we hope will appeal to a broad audience.”

In addition to the stage programme there will be an array of food from around the world for the community to enjoy ranging from African to Asian to European as traditional British Tea and, fresh cream cakes and scones.
