Plymouth Respect Festival
  • Plymouth Guildhall, Armada Way, Plymouth

Save event

Organised by the Plymouth and Devon Racial Equality Council (PDREC), Plymouth Respect Festival festival showcases Plymouth's diversity enabling different communities to come together and promote the intrinsic message of respect and equality for all. 

Since the first festival 21 years ago, the festival has continued to develop and last year saw it returning to its home roots at Plymouth Guildhall. 

The festival has two parts: firstly, it is a free multicultural art with a variety of performers, food, street parades and interactive information stands. Secondly, the festival's outreach parade programme works with schools and communities using carnival arts and dance as tools for encouraging diversity awareness.

Timings: Parade - 10:15-11:15 | Guildhall doors open - 11:00-17:00. Keep up to date via the festival Twitter feed.

The University of Plymouth is proud to support the Plymouth Respect Festival.


The University is a proud partner of PDREC, an independent and impartial registered charity working across Plymouth, Exeter and Devon, to promote equality of opportunity and eliminate racial discrimination. The University was privileged to host Respect Festival on campus in 2014 and 2015. Visit our webpage for more information about our partnership.
