Various, some free

The Festival began in August 2001, just before 9/11, and has grown to be a celebration of diverse cultures and communities –a place of encounter, conversation and respect, of shared wisdom applied to the issues of our day. We hope you will join us for us much as you can, bring your friends and indeed join our new Friends Scheme (see page 38) to support us as we enter straitened times. 2010 being also the centenary of the Edinburgh World Mission Conference 1910, we want to make a clear acknowledgement that the world is a world of many faiths and cultures, across which we can see the greatness of the spirit, both human and divine. “O mankind, indeed We created you from male and female, and made you into nations and tribes that you may know one another.” (Qur’an 49:13) Pax, salaam, shalom Donald Reid, Director, (on behalf of the team)
