'JOURNEY TO HOPE': ILLUMINATION OF ELY CATHEDRAL AND CONCERT

11 March 2017 6:30pm - 10pm

Ely Refugee Resettlement Campaign is staging a light show and concert to raise awareness and funds for its work helping Syrian refugee families. Ely cathedral will be illuminated with a spectacular light show, whilst a concert of choral music and readings, titled 'Journey to Hope', will take place at St Mary's Church nearby.

In what promises to be a wonderful event, unlike anything seen before in Ely, the cathedral will be lit up with colours and images, from 6.30pm - 10pm and it is hoped that many people will come to witness the spectacle, have a hot drink and make a donation to the charity. Posters, on the theme of 'Home' and 'Refuge', designed by local children as part of a competition, will be featured as part of the light show, at around 6.45pm.

The concert, 'Journey to Hope', will take place at 7pm at St Mary's Church, and will feature the William Singers, a local chamber choir, singing beautiful, contemplative music, interspersed with readings, which will reflect refugees' journeys from danger to safety. Instead of tickets, donations to Ely Refugee Resettlement Campaign will be requested, with a minimum suggested donation of £10 (but the group wishes to be as inclusive as possible, so will not turn away supporters).
