COOLture is Hull's annual children and young people's celebration of multi-cultural music, dance and dress. It takes place as part of the Lord Mayor's Carnival – so you can watch the parade in Queen's Gardens and around the city centre from 1pm, and then enjoy the COOLture celebration afterwards!
As part of the final Talent Match bid, HLC are conducting a short online survey designed by young people. If you work with young people, please encourage them to complete it at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XNYC77F
