  • Pakistan
  • The Philippines
  • Ghana
  • Oman

We also have various live performances, including traditional Bulgarian folk dance, Chinese guitar, a fashion show, Cuban salsa and Bollywood and there's live music too! 
The Festival of Cultures is a fantastic opportunity to discover a whole new world right here in Portsmouth - we'd love to see you there!
