While the group danced in Bury St Edmunds others were performing the same moves around the world as part of the One Billion Rising event.

Director of Bury St Edmunds Multicultural Group, Faith Stabler, said: “We are hosting this event to highlight One Billion Rising which is a global event with approximatly 200 countries involved today to highlight issues of violence against women.

“Lots of people think it’s not there but it’s in all levels, all classes and all areas. These are important areas.”
