Running from 10am till 5pm the FREE event will feature sessions in traditional dance from visiting artistes from Ghana and India. There will be the chance to go on a special tour of the city’s internationally renowned World Cultures collection which is kept safely at the Resource Centre when the thousands of items are not on show.
