reveal (almost) full and final details for the next fantastic LMHR
Stoke Sixth Form College fields
by Stoke-on-Trent City Council, the Stoke Mayor's Office, Stoke Trades
Council, NORSCARF, Stoke Racial Equality Council, various national and West
Midlands trade unions.
Carnival is part of the response from anti-racists in the city to the racist
BNP gaining a council seat there in May's local elections. The vast majority
of people in Stoke want nothing whatever to do with fascist parties like the
BNP, and the Carnival will be a positive celebration of multicultural Stoke,
a show of multiracial unity through music. The event should have a positive
impact on a council by-election in the city two weeks later, where the BNP
again intend to con their way to election.
Carnival will be a free, open-air, daytime event, comprising a main stage
for live bands, plus second stage within a marquee featuring DJs. Music on
the day will aim to have something for everyone in keeping with the Unity
theme of the event: from rock to hip-hop, from bhangra to drum'n'bass.
