The evening’s entertainment will be hosted by BBC radio presenter, Brody Swain, and will include acts from a wide variety of musical genres including as 2 Tone, Gospel, Polish music, Bhangra, Reggae, Rock and Spoken Word.


Leading the line-up will be Neville Staple and His Band, best-known as a form member of The Specials, achieving huge success with hits such as Ghost Town, A Message to You Rudy and Too Much Too Young.

Diversity Rocks marks the 40th anniversary of Rock Against Racism, a movement which sparked marches, festivals and concerts across the UK, aimed at fighting racism through music, from 1976 – 1981. It also follows on from Coventry’s famous Festival Against Racism which was held at the Butts Stadium in Coventry in 1981.
