On Friday night 55 people shared a delicious meal at St Werberghs Community Centre, at the latest 'Peace Feast' hosted by Bridges for Communities.
The food was provided by Karam Catering, a refugee startup featuring the culinary skills of Syrian women who have recently arrived in Bristol through the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme.
The evening also featured music on the saz by Dijwar Khalil, a short talk, and lots of fantastic conversations happening around the tables!
What participants said about the evening:
'It was so great to meet and spend time getting to know and laughing with people who I may otherwise not come across.'
'It was so wonderful to hear the music and watch people join in with singing around the room. Felt like a real moment of solidarity.'
'It was a really good event.. the food was amazing and it has been really nice to meet new people from different cultures.'
