...will be held on Saturday November 19th 2011 at Westminster Cathedral Hall.
Special guest speaker: Mgr Keith Newton of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. Come and hear about the Ordinariate, a sign of great hope and joy for the Church in England!
There's a special celebration of the life of Blessed John Paul II in drama, music and film featuring members of a youth drama team from Oxford.
The Festival opens at 10.30am, with Archbishop Vincent Nichols and the Gallery Choir of the Westminster Cathedral Choir School.
There are stalls and displays from a great range of Catholic groups and organisations - bookstalls galore, stalls selling crafts, statues, Catholic publications, rosaries and goodness knows what else (last year a chap selling scarves in the new Papal tartan sold out), plus opportunities to meet members of religious orders, charities, and communities, plus home-baked refreshments, and more...
Entry is free. Just turn up. There's a play corner for children alongside the refreshment area. Tea and coffee freshly brewed throughout the day, relays of enthusiasts selling sandwiches and cakes. Tickets for talks are £2, from the Welcome Desk.
