There was a very special atmosphere in the room - people were chatting, making friends, trying samples of traditional food, enjoying great programme. Over 200 people attended the event to enjoy singing, drumming and dancing performed by participants from different cultural backgrounds. Face painting was going on all night - special thanks to Suzette Ruane and her daughter Cushla Ruane for marvelous work, as well as other volunteers who were very busy to ensure all runs well.
