The day was a great learning experience for all those who attended the event. The Belgrade Theatre team was at its best in helping BOPA to stage this important event for Asian community that was represented by members from all communities, community leaders, faith leaders, political leaders from all parties, academics, representatives from local schools, civic dignitaries, HM Lord Lieutenants from West Midlands & Warwickshire, senior servicemen from Royal Navy, Air Force and Army.
