GRTHM 2010

Sussex Gypsy Heritage Day

Sussex Gypsy and Traveller communities joined with their local police force on 12 June to celebrate their heritage at the Sussex gypsy Heritage Day in June.

Featuring live music from across Europe, wagons, campfires, displays and films, the day took over a community centre and park in the heart of Brighton.

These pictures were supplied by Geoff Foster the Equality & Diversity Liaison Officer of Sussex Police.

Dispelling Myths

One of the aims of GRTHM is to counter-balance the widespread ignorance of Traveller communities that often leads to hatred and conflict. Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month celebrates our culture and history by tackling the negative stereotyping and prejudices that have led to this situation.
