The Festival of Colour will take place from March 26 to April 2, 2023.

After a difficult year, including the cancellation of Aspiring Conversations 2022, we are very much looking forward to the Festival of Colour in 2023!

We look forward to seeing you in there! 


Programme goes live 31st Jan 2022
