unite the community and provide an opportunity to highlight the positive aspects of living, working, and studying in Hyde Park.
demonstrate communities strength through voluntary involvement.
celebrate cultural diversity through art, music and performance.
create a focus point for community activities.
unite and provide opportunities to showcase skills, talent and nature of local people and artists. Hyde Park Unity Day is an opportunity for anyone or group to show their creative flair.

There ain’t much here for me to do
So I’m just quietly passing through
While I’m here, I’ll lend a hand
Can also sing and play in a band
I do this not just for me
Because I’ve heard of this thing
