On Friday 29th May, we'll be hosting our first virtual Peace Feast! At a time when we can't get together in person, it's even more important that we find creative ways to connect and to build friendships across the city.
With a shared meal (takeaway), music and guest speakers, this event will be broadcasting live to your living room so that we can join together from the comfort of our own homes.
If you live within a 2-mile radius of Baraka Community Cafe in Easton, a delicious, 3-course, vegetarian takeaway meal can be delivered using their team of volunteer cyclists, or through a socially-distanced collection service. Please check on the map using the link provided to see if your address is within this radius before ordering. All food is halal.
If you live outside this area, then you can only order the takeaway meal if you are able to come and collect it yourself through our socially-distanced collection service - you will need to pick it up between 6.30 and 6.40pm. Alternatively, you can buy an 'Online Event' ticket only - you'll need to make yourself something delicious to eat at home so that you can still share a meal with us.
Guest speakers will reflect on the 'new normal' and where they see hope for our communities in the coming days. Music will be performed by the fantastic Danny Vincent (Coordinator of LARA & Bristol Refugee Festival).
All profits from the evening will go towards supporting refugees and asylum seekers in Bristol who are particularly isolated or in need at this time.
Registration is now open (click 'Register' below):
- £10 per person for food and online access (limited to the areas in Bristol mentioned)
- £2 to join the online event without food (available anywhere)
- Pay It Forward ticket option available which will enable a refugee or asylum seeker to attend (and receive the meal) for free.
