“We are based in Liverpool which has got the oldest Chinatown in Europe, so we hav

e a rich history of the two cultures mixing together,” said James Roach, who heads the group of UK and British-Chinese performers.上海后花园女神会所

“We try and represent Chinese culture as authentically as we can in the co

nditions that we’ve got. Glastonbury tries to represent all cultures, so we are kind of th

e Chinese slice that tries to keep that bit alive. It’s important for us on t上海后花园女神会所wo levels – one, it’s the most important f

give people a break – people who always think they are on the edge of being culturally or racially insensitive – to kind of g上海后花园女神会所

et on their side a little and show them they don’t have to worry so much. So that’s the line I am trying to tread.”
