Hundreds of visitors from Dover and further afield gathered for the annual multicultural festival at Pencester Gardens in the centre of the town on Saturday 30th June to celebrate the diverse communities which live across the district.





Visitors were entertained throughout the day by various performers from local schools and cultural groups which included choirs, steel bands, and Chinese dancers.
