“We’ve had to constantly monitor the progress of the pandemic to see whether it would be safe or even possible to restore our festival. Now we are confident that families will be safe and able to enjoy a day of fun and entertainment.

The festival will run from 11.00 in the morning until late afternoon with a full programme of on-stage presentations of traditional cultural dances and modern song and dance routines peformed by kids of all ages.

“These children are truly talented and charming”, Mr Nguyen said.

There will be games and fun acivities for all the children who come along. There is also a chance to participate in the competitions and display cultural costumes in the ever-popular costume parade.
