Music is living testimony to the fact that cultures can and do mix. It unites us and gives us strength, and offers a vibrant celebration of our multicultural and multiracial society. Racism seeks only to divide and weaken us. Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) was set up in 2002 in response to rising levels of racism and electoral successes for the British National Party (BNP).

We use the energy of our music scene to celebrate diversity and involve people in anti-racist activity, in the tradition of the Rock Against Racism (RAR) movement of the late 1970s. There have now been many hundreds of LMHR events, from large outdoor festivals to local gigs and club nights.

The LMHR campaign has a renewed importance with the increase in islamophobia, anti-migrant racism and hostility towards refugees in Britain and across Europe. We think it is time to reignite our national movement against racism through music.

Having organised many gigs and events in Plymouth over the past 15 years, Plymouth LMHR relaunched in March 2017, to help our sister organisation Stand Up To Racism (SUTR) build the movement against racism in Plymouth and beyond. It is vital that everyone gets involved however they can.
