  • May 2018 – Bristol Walk Fest: Multi Faith Trail

    This free event took place from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm. People could walk the whole trail or join one or more parts of this trail, visiting the Bristol Hindu Temple, the Bristol Bahai Centre, the Bristol Central Mosque and the Bristol and West Progressive Synagogue.

    Each visit lasted roughly 45 minutes and walks between venues were about 10 to 20 minutes long.

    Start Location: Hindu Temple – 163 Church Road, Bristol, BS5 9LA

    End Location: Bristol & West Progressive Synagogue, 43/47 Bannerman Rd, Bristol BS5 0RR

    Distance: 2.5 miles

    Duration: 1 hr walking/4 hr event in total with visits

    Joint organisers were Bristol Multi Faith Forum and Inner City and East Bristol Health Team

    It was really well attended, with 18 to 24 walkers joining, including the then Lord Mayor, Councillor Cleo Lake.

    The majority of walkers had no faith, 3 “kind of” and none of the walkers had been into the Bahai centre or other venues before.
