An Asian market was held all day in the Michael Fowler Centre. On stage, there was a programme of cultural entertainment by community groups. The schedule included lion dancing, drumming, dumpling making and martial arts.

And in the MFC carpark, a carnival with petting ponies, a merry-go-ground, an obstacle course inflatable and activity crafts.
