Churches and schools from many denominations are welcomed to take part in the event which is being held on Friday Saturday and Sunday June the 12th, 13th, and 14th. The theme for this year is the “Year of Consecrated Life”
The Festival is open to the public from 10.0AM until 7.0PM daily, culminating in a presentation Evening and Concert at 5.00pm on the Sunday Evening, with a concert by the Birmingham Schools Wind Orchestra. Admission for the Concert followed by Wine and Canapes in the Grimshaw Room is £7.50.
Two year old Margaret Mary from Edgbaston was among the first to look around the Cathedral to find a suitable display corner for her Floral Tribute to Our Lord. Her choice was met with her Daddy’s approval, being by Our Ladies’ Statue.
