Festival of Spirituality and Peace will look at human reality – including controversial and difficult issues - from a variety of cultural perspectives, seeking convergent wisdom and signs of hope.
You can join us in our celebratory opening event on Sunday 7 August 2011, with various upcoming Festival performers and special guests – including Bishop Brian Smith, actor David Benson, world no1 Taiko drummer Art Lee, singer Coreen Scott, poet Tessa Ransford, musician Mio Shapley, and the Loud and Proud Choir.
There will also be a message of strong support for the Festival and its aims from Scotland's First Minister, Alex Salmond.
Participants will be invited to tie a 'ribbon for peace' onto the railings of St John's Church, the venue. The address is: Princes Street, Edinburgh EH2 4BJ. The events runs from 6-7pm, and will be followed by refreshments (until 9pm) with a number of artists and contributors present. All are welcome!
