Peace Feast

Autumn Peace Feasts - Oct 2021

It's been wonderful to hold two Peace Feasts in different areas of Bristol this last month, bringing people together from different communities and watching the magic that happens as they simply share a meal together and get to know one another. 

The Knowle Peace Feast was held at Redcatch Community Garden and was a brilliant evening under the dome of their huge marquee. A delicious feast was served up by Holly and the catering team, and music was provided by Turkish musician Özcan. Special thanks to Mike Cardwell who runs the garden and Imam Qazi from the Bristol Jamia Mosque in Totterdown for sharing a little bit of their personal stories with us. 

A week after the Knowle event, the Easton Peace Feast was held at Easton CE Academy in partnership with Easton Christian Family Centre. Special thanks to Baraka Community Café for cooking up a sumptuous feast, and to Shafiullah and Muna, our guest speakers for the night. 

We'll leave you with some quotes from those that attended the two evenings:

It was a lovely evening - warm and uplifting. Great mix of speeches, music, company and lovely food.

It was great to connect with local people of different cultures and faiths. Lovely food too!

A wonderful, friendly, well run event - great fun. I will come again.

I was not expecting much but met Ahmed from Afghanistan who was inspiring. So glad I came.

Really lovely to get to meet a family from Syria and hear about their journey to Bristol. Amazing food and music.

'An amazing and wonderful experience, a great way to learn about other cultures'
