It’s art, music and theatre. It’s comedy, sport and film. It’s debates, dance and a celebration of the diverse Christian communities in London. And, with over 20,000 visitors each year, it’s London’s largest Christian festival.
The festival runs from 18 to 27 May 2012 and takes place at venues across central London. There’s so much going on you just have to check out the full programme on the Pentecost Festival website. Christian Aid has nine fantastic events featuring this year – please click on the event title link below for full details and to book tickets.
