Starting at the OPEN CENTRE, 152 Pear Tree Road, visiting the Hindu Temple, Mosque, Sikh Gurdwara (where food will be provided) and finishing at the Baptist Church. It is intended to be informative, stimulating and fun, a wonderful opportunity to ask questions and find out more of what is on our own doorstep. At certain places of worship, appropriate head coverings (scarves/plain caps/hats) are necessary, arms and legs covered and shoes to be taken off.

Both events are free although donations would be appreciated.
