Tunbridge Wells Great Get Together
TWFOE organised a plastic-free picnic in Calverley Grounds in memory of Jo Cox who said that “We have more in common than that which divides us.”
The community picnic on the 6th Anniversary of Jo’s death was supported by Cohesion Plus, the organiser of Mela, and brought together a wide range of people from different backgrounds and cultures who shared food and joined in with various free activities, such as acoustic music, including an Indian and African drum workshop, sponsored by Cohesion Plus, sing-along with local choirs, professional face painting (for all ages!), children’s games and a plants and seeds swap.
Works of art, poetry and writing in support of planet Earth and in response to the urgency of climate change.
Location: Trinity Theatre, Church Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN1 1JP
