Celebrate diversity on your doorstep with our local Mayor

Join Cllr Mercy Umeh for an evening of dancing, food and music from around the world and help support two important local charities.

The Mayor of Hammersmith & Fulham is hosting this unique event on 11th March 2017 at the ‘Assembly Hall’ in Hammersmith Town Hall,  King Street. Built in the 1930s this is one of the largest halls in West London and the perfect venue to host a celebration of the rich mix of cultural diversity in Hammersmith and Fulham. Cllr Mercy Umeh would like to invite residents from all over the city to join the evening and help raise money for two local charities.

The evening will mix together international flavours, culinary delights and artistic performances from all corners of the world, and will include performances ranging from Irish folk music to a Caribbean steel band. Not only this, there will be dancing, drinks, canapes and a three course meal and an opportunity to win some great prizes from the raffle. The evening promises to be a vibrant showcase of what a dynamic and wonderfully varied borough Hammersmith and Fulham is.

The event is in support of the Mayor’s chosen local charities, Hammersmith and Fulham Mind and Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank. H&F Mind is the boroughs leading resource for advice, support and empowerment in mental health. They run projects that range from befriending and counselling services to youth mentoring and carpentry courses for those facing mental health issues or suffering from isolation. H&F Foodbank works across the borough, providing emergency food, toiletries, and other necessities to local people in crisis who have been referred to them.  They also work alongside other organisations to provide professional advice to their clients; as well as running cooking courses and holiday clubs with the long-term ambition of eradicating food poverty. The mayor has championed these two locally impactful organisations since May 2016, and all money raised from the evening will be donated to these vital Hammersmith & Fulham causes.

Tickets are £30 per person or £25 per person for table bookings of 10 people or more. The evening will start at 6pm at Assembly Hall, Hammersmith Town Hall, King Street W6 9JU.

  1. I have been working for Hammersmith and Fulham Mind voluntarily for over a year. Payment is being discussed. Please can I have a discount?
