We're delighted to announce our upcoming peace feast at Hartcliffe Methodist Church, on Friday 24th Feb, from 7-9pm.

With live music and a delicious Egyptian feast, this is set to be a wonderful evening.

Location | Hartcliffe Methodist Church, 51 Mowcroft Road, BS13 0LT


Starter: Lentil soup with Egyptian salad

Main Course: Egyptian Kushari

Dessert: Basbousa

Vegetarian and vegan options are available - please let Asia know any dietary requirements you have by emailing or messaging her on 07579852567 .  Everything is halal and no alcohol will be served.

Book your place now to avoid missing out! A 'Pay It Forward' option is available - why not consider buying an extra ticket so that we can make a place available to somebody who would not normally be able to afford it?

A Peace Feast brings people together from different communities to share a meal, hear inspiring stories and build friendship.


Help us make this event more environmentally friendly

With thanks to Quartet Community Foundation and a BCC Climate and Ecological Emergency Community Grant, we are working towards making our events more environmentally friendly this year by always providing a vegetarian and vegan option, reducing overall meat consumption, reducing the amount of plastics used, encouraging people to use public transport etc.

We would therefore like to ask you to kindly consider coming to the event on foot / by bike / using public transport if you are able to.

Fri 24th Feb 2023 19:00 - Fri 24th Feb 2023 21:00
