FAITHS IN TUNE - 8th London Interfaith Music Festival
at the British Museum | Sunday, 31 March 2019
"Britain in the world and the world in Britain": On the weekend of the Brexit, the Faiths In Tune - 8th London Interfaith Music Festival will fill the British Museum's Great Court and galleries with the music and dance of religious traditions from all over the world, reflecting the beautiful diversity and plurality of communities within the UK and celebrating the British desire to remain In Tune with the world.
On Sunday, 31 March 2019, the British Museum will become the host for the FAITHS IN TUNE - 8th London Interfaith Music Festival from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm. The festival will feature a diverse music and dance stage programme in the famous Great Court, as well as an interfaith community fair where visitors can learn about and meet with various faith and cultural communities from all over London.
The entrance to the Festival is free (please register for the event and support us with a donation).
The festival's main objective is the promotion of interfaith understanding, respect and dialogue by bringing people of all different (and no) faith backgrounds together through the universal language of music.
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 archaeology, but through the glasses of faith and interfaith traditions.
The programme runs parallelly in two spaces:
Ground floor, in the centre of the Great Court, in front of the rotunda, facing you as you enter the Museum.
Room 17, Ground floor, to the left of the Great Court.
For orientation, please consult the floor plan of the British Museum.
Meet London's faith communities and interfaith initiatives face to face!
Located in the Great Court.
