London is a world city, home to many different faiths and ethnicities. It provides safety and prosperity for a diverse global population. Preserving this existence requires an active effort on the part of the people of London. Recent events - terrorist attacks, a rise in hate crime, and a divisive politics – make clear the importance of providing safe spaces for shared culture and the forging of a shared identity. The Coronavirus pandemic has also reduced London's cultural life, and we wish to see this restored. Music provides one means of creating safe spaces for cultural interaction, and for refreshing Londoners who have dealt with a difficult year. Our contribution is the creation of a new interfaith festival that focusses on the human voice – Faithful Voices.

The festival includes workshops for amateur singers, a concert by professional ensembles and a second concert that combines both professional and amateur performance. There will also be special services and visits to places of worship (a church, a synagogue and a mosque). The music performed represents aspects of Judaism, Christianity and Hinduism. Please register for workshops or visits, or buy tickets for concerts, using the links below.

Wednesday 23rd March 6pm, Brick Lane Mosque

A special visit to the only building that has been a church, a synagogue and a mosque. Unfortunatley the President of the Mosque has pased away and the Masjid committee feel it's not an appropriate time to have a tour at this time. We have therefore had to postpone this visit.
