Unity 101 celebrate their 11th year in style at Central Hall

« Back to News // Monday, January 9, 2017

Community radio station Unity 101 celebrated their eleventh year of being on air by taking over Central Hall with two separate events and a whole host of family entertainment.

Hundreds of families visited Central Hall for a completely free Family Fun Day, which featured a varied mixture of activities, including searching your family history, henna painting, learning more about African culture and experiencing different cuisines. Guests were also treated to a visit from Master Chef 2012 winner Shelina Permalloo, who entertained the crowd with a live cookery demonstration, followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Stalls of fresh Indian and African food were selling hot meals, with explosive flavours and colours, which went down extremely well followed by a visit to the chocolate fountain and popcorn machine. 

Arts and crafts tables provided hours worth of entertainment for the children, who came with their parents from all over Southampton to join in on the fun. 

There was certainly something for everyone, as an ever changing schedule of Bollywood dancers, African drummers and sport demonstrations were shown in different sections of the hall. 

With the Fun Day over, the festivities didn't stop there, as a glamorous black tie event in our Main Hall continued the day's dancing right through the evening. Live musical performances from the Harmony Group and Unity 101 Collective Band raised the roof and completed a weekend of celebrations for the radio station in full glitz and glamour.
