Ian Campbell, Dave Campbell, a representative of the Grey Cock Folk Club, Angus Grant , John Mitchell, and a Birmingham Trades Council representative aided by the Community Relations Council and West Indian/Asian organisations, and supported by BIrmingham Council put on this first muliticultural Folk Festival in Birmingham. The idea was that the first festival would fund an annual multicultural event. It is not known at this time, whether they succeeded in running any subsequent festivals, as this is the only reference I currently have. Does anyone know anything further?


The programme which was designed by Hunt Emerson can be seen reproduced below..
