AN annual festival will return in celebration of music, arts, and culture.

The Harambee Pasadia Afro Fusion Arts Festival will be held in Barnard Castle next month to celebrate African civilisation.

Organisers have announced the line-up of musicians, performers and activities and say the event will be its biggest and best yet.

Harambee Pasadia is a 4-day family friendly camping event, which invites people to get together and spend the day, while enjoying a range of exciting activities.

The festival will honour innovators in its new thinkers and inventors space where guests can play, create, and design.

Guests can come and explore ideas around digital technologies, discover stories through exhibition, and learn skills through making.

The festival aims to encourage unity and bring people from diverse backgrounds together, bridging the culture gap through performances, workshops, and the shared experience of afro-fusion music and dance.

The festival will start on Thursday, May 30, at TCR The Hub.
