Musician and refugee Cecilia Ndhlovu talks about her own experiences and being a refugee in Bristol
Bristol's Queens Square has seen the launch of Refugee Week today with musicians from around the world gathering to celebrate their freedom. As Nigel Turner reports all the artists have one thing in common - they have all fled their home countries to seek sanctuary in Britain.
Organiser Deasy Bamford talks about Refugee Week and what makes it so special.
A year after Bristol became a City of Sanctuary, the city is marking the beginning of Refugee Week with a music festival. Artists from around the world will take to the stage in Queen Square this afternoon (Sunday.)
The aim of the event is to celebrate the cultural contribution of refugees and asylum seekers and increase understanding of what may have forced them to flee their homes and seek refuge in Bristol.
