Kids of all ages, parents, teachers, organisers, librarians, musicians, artists, authors and an illustrator, bookseller, Buddhists, a Middle Eastern dancer and her drummer, a school Glee Club and a mayor.And so began the Festival and the One World Many Stories children's art exhibition with a fabulous afternoon of music, art and storytelling.
And the viewing of The Mirror Project at The Ipswich Community Gallery - the images of Jeannie Baker.
Filling a hall on a Saturday afternoon to listen and support local young singers and artists - priceless.
