About Respect

The Plymouth Respect Festival is designed to promote respect and celebrate diversity across all areas of the community. The festival is organised by the Plymouth and Devon Racial Equality Council and hosted by Plymouth University.

This year we are please to announce, that Respect will be part of the University’s  "Big festival weekend" so expect lots of other activities to complement and enhance Respect

Since its launch 17 years ago, the festival has traditionally taken place every October but we have a new summer date this year 20/21st June, so we are looking forward to sunshine and a lovely summer feeling, In previous years the festival has included parades in the city centre, live music, dancing and theatrical events, play activities, world food, information stands and many showcased events.

This will continue all over the University campus and the programme will be confirmed in due course.
