The Unity of Faiths Festival: Southall Park, London

8 Jul 2012 (All day)

 the largest open air interfaith festival in London

From Sukhdeep Dhillon, Festival Co-ordinator:

"The aim is pure and simple; bringing together all communities to live in peace and harmony.

The festival had its debut last year on the 11th June 2011, in Southall Park, Ealing Borough, West London. It was attended by over 8000 people and was watched online by 76,000 people from 23 countries.

The festival was opened by 12 multi-faith leaders; followed by various cultural acts of art, poetry, comedy, music and dance. These acts not only entertained the crowds who joined in, but really promoted the sense of togetherness and  community spirit that uplifts and unites any society.

This event enhanced the union of faiths and cultures and played a major role in Southall not being targeted 2 months later during the London Riots. The festival was mentioned and also praised by the Prime Minister in the House of Commons at the time of the riots.

This year's festival will take place on Sunday 8th July 2012 at Southall Park. The organisers will introduce various different areas for the public to engage and interact through various zones - Education Zone, Interactive Zone, Faith Zone and Kids Zone.

There are many ways that you, your colleagues, friends and family can be involved; some of the areas are Sponsorship, Exhibiting, Showcasing your unique Culture or joining in on the day."
