A multicultural array of smells and flavours were on show in Bury St Edmunds last Saturday as the town’s Multicultural Women’s Group hosted its annual Taste of Culture event.

Members of the 30-strong group provided edible delicacies from 14 countries including Jamaica, Bulgaria, Iran, Italy and Pakistan.

The event at the Quaker Meeting House was attended by Cllr Patrick Chung, Mayor of St Edmundsbury, and Deputy Mayor Julia Wakelam.

Faith Stabler, secretary of the Multicultural Women’s Group Bury St Edmunds, said: “The event was wonderful and the food was fantastic. It was great for our members to be able to share their cultures in a modern area such as Bury.

“It was very successful, well over 100 people came through the doors in three hours. It was also a family event, we had music, dancing and a children’s table as well.”

The group meets for monthly coffee mornings at the St John’s Centre. To find out more, visit the Multicultural Women’s Group’s website.
