The Diocese of Gloucester, Barnwood Trust, Gloucestershire African Community Foundation and Gloucester Cathedral have come together to organise FestivALL, a celebration of inclusive community across the county and beyond.
The FestivalALL is about relationship and aims to both nurture and celebrate community. The Festival aims to bring people together across the county and beyond to celebrate inclusive community. It will be an opportunity for people to learn about the community in which they live and work, build relationships and strengthen networks.
We are inviting organisations to come together and be part of this Festival by either holding a local community event, or being involved in the two day launch at Gloucester Cathedral.
The outline so far:
Thursday 17 May – Launch in the Cathedral, open to all, Bishop Rachel will be a key note speaker. There will be music, street food, dancing and much more in the grounds of the Cathedral.
Friday 18 May – Professional networking day for organisations in the Cathedral / keynote speakers, workshops and breakout groups.
Saturday 19th May – Saturday 16th June – A month of community events across the Diocese, promoted under the umbrella of Festival for All, to promote local unity and build relationships. These can be from a small local picnic, to a large music festival! They can be events already planned, or organised especially for the Festival for All month.
