FAITHS IN TUNE
6th London Interfaith Music Festival
at the British Museum
Sunday, 21 May 2017
In May 2017, Faiths In Tune teamed up again with The British Museum for the 6th annual London Interfaith Music Festival.
On Sunday, 21 May 2017, the British Museum hosted for the second time the FAITHS IN TUNE - London Interfaith Music Festival from 10 am to 5 pm. The festival featured a diverse stage music and dance programme as well as an interfaith community fair where visitors could learn about and get in touch with various faith and cultural communities from all over London.
The British Museum is the UK's most visited attraction and a majority of the items on its display can be traced back to various religious backgrounds and sacred practices. The Interfaith Music Festival encourages visitors to look at the museum's exhibition not just in terms of cultural diversity and archeology, but through the glasses of faith and interfaith traditions. At the same time, the festival's main objective remains, as in previous years, the promotion of interfaith understanding, respect and dialogue by bringing people of all different faith backgrounds together through the universal language of music.
The programme runs parallelly on two stages:
Great Court Stage
Ground floor, in the centre of the Great Court, in front of the rotunda, facing you as you enter the Museum.
Standing only, limited seats may be available to those with difficulties standing.
BP Lecture Theatre Stage
Lower ground floor, right underneath the Great Court, accesible via stairs or lifts from the Great Court.
Seating available, reservation via Eventbrite recommended.
