Festival of Peace (10 Nov 2018)

Festival of Peace

Saturday 10th November 2018

On Remembrance Sunday weekend this year we remember the centenary of the end of the First World War. After such a terrible conflict, thoughts were of peace and how to make a better world out of the ashes of war. Our Festival asks the question, What kind of World…?

Here is a flyer [pdf] describing the Festival.
