Plenty for arts lovers at Bromsgrove's Three Faith Festival

BROMSGROVE will play host to a Three Faiths Festival next weekend.

The event has been organised by the Bromsgrove Muslim Community Trust after the success of the town’s annual Eid festival which has been attended by 800 people every year it has been held.

The Three Faiths Festival will be between 11.30am and 4pm next Saturday (November 1) at the Council House, Spadesbourne Suite.

The event has something for all the family, including Indian food, performances by a children’s magician, Henna painting, Christian architecture table, Islamic Calligraphy, face-painting, Jewish architecture table and Nasheed music

Dr Waqar Azmi OBE, Chairman of the Bromsgrove Muslim Community Trust, said the organisation was delighted to be working together with Bromsgrove Distirct Council to put on a great free family day out for the whole family to enjoy.

“We’re delighted to organise the Three Faiths Festival to celebrate the beautiful diversity of our society and encourage friendship, goodwill and understanding between all people and faiths, especially between Muslims, Christians and Jews.

“In our diverse society good relations between our communities are essential.

“Without these ties, myths and prejudices flourish and by organising a free family event for people of all faiths or none we are breaking down barriers and finding ways for people to work together to improve their communities for the better.

“We hope that parents with children will especially take the time to attend as Saturday 1st November falls during school half-term holidays.

The event is free, however, there will be a small charge for food and some activities.
