The Festival Town

Date: 23 Jun 2022

Local Start Time: 5:00pm

Location: Cheltenham Everyman Theatre to Imperial Square and Gardens

Country: UK 2022

Amal visits the Festival Town, where the many festivals of Cheltenham come together in a big party parade for her.

Free to attend / no tickets required. 

At The Everyman Theatre she will be given a royal welcome from the Queens of King Henry VIII – the cast of SIX The Musical.

As Amal walks through the town centre, she will be welcomed by children and their poems of welcome.

She will lay flowers of remembrance for those she has lost.  Amal’s last memory of Cheltenham, the festival town, will be dancing with children of many different nationalities in a celebration of the life that we share together.

In partnership with Everyman Theatre Cheltenham, Cheltenham Borough Council, Visit Cheltenham, Cheltenham Welcomes Refugees, Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers, Lives of Colour and Cheltenham Festivals.

With thanks to Gloucestershire Constabulary and Gloucestershire County Council. 

“We are honoured to have Amal visit Cheltenham.  The Everyman Theatre has supported Amal and raised awareness of her journey and of displaced children since she left the Turkey Syrian border in 2021.  The Everyman is committed to supporting refugees and asylum seekers in Gloucestershire and is delighted to be working with Cheltenham Borough Council, Visit Cheltenham, Cheltenham Welcomes Refugees, GARAS, Lives of Colour and Cheltenham Festivals to welcome Amal.” – Mark Goucher, CEO Cheltenham Everyman
