A rival event to Nigel Farage’s planned appearance in Dundee will still go ahead despite the controversial politician backing out of his visit to the city.
Dundee Thegither had arranged an outdoor event for the same day Mr Farage was due to come to the Caird Hall.
A spokesman for the Brexit Party confirmed last week the “Brexiteer fightback” event was being axed.
Dundee Thegither confirmed the Dundee for Diversity, Not Farage event will still be going ahead – labelled as the Diversity Party celebration – at the Marryat Hall on September 12.
Co-organiser Siobhan Tolland said: “When it was axed we were in talks with the council about the counter event which will now be more localised.
“People approached us hoping it would still go ahead and the general consensus was to do that.
“In a way it has made it easier for us now that it has been moved indoors.
“We were overwhelmed by the response from the public to be honest.
“Dundee Thegither felt Mr Farage’s intended visit only served to remind us that we don’t celebrate our different cultures and communities enough.”
Indian dancers and ceilidh performers will be among the entertainment on offer.
A foodbank collection will also be taking place on the day on behalf of Taught By Muhammad.
