Hundreds of people got behind an integration concert in Wisbech.

James Liboyi brought music from across the world to be played in the Queen Mary Centre during the Fenland Fusion Forum concert.

Mr Liboyi organised the session in response to a report compiled by think tank Policy Exchange, which placed Wisbech as second on its list of least integrated towns in the country.

People across the town hit out at the report, which also saw Boston named as the least integrated town in the country.

Around 200 people from across the area went along to the Queen Mary Centre on February 26 to enjoy the concert.

Mr Liboyi said: “To say the concert was good is an understatement, it was fantastic. The atmosphere was electric.

“People who attended were amazed and were not expecting that positive reaction.

“They were dancing together to music they didn’t know.”

The Big Hat and Soul Choir were among the artists performing on the night. The 50-strong choir gave a diverse performance, which included African and Eastern European Songs.

African Jambo Band also entertained the large crowd along with the Baltic dancers.

Irish folk group, The Albanion Washing Machine Company were also popular.

As this concert was so successful, Mr Liboyi is looking to hold another event shortly and will be holding talks with his committee.

Mr Liboyi said: “I have had phone calls from people asking when the next concert will be held.”

He is also hoping to attract funding to put on future events. If you would like to support Fenland Fusion Forum contact Mr Liboyi on 0778 0959749.
