MUSIC, dance and celebration will bring people of all faiths and non together at Oldham's Festival of Light.

Organised by Oldham Interfaith Forum, the event will take place on Tuesday, December 5 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.

All faiths and those with no faith are welcome to celebrate Christmas, Channukah, Deepawali and Mawlid-An-Nabi, under one roof.

The event will have a Brass Band from Crompton House School, Dancers from Nat-Raj Dance Academy of the Oldham Indian Association and a Nasheed artist.

There will also be short explanations of each celebration and why they are relevant in today’s world.

Jit Kara from Oldham Interfaith Forum said: “The Festival of Light gives all people a unique opportunity to learn a little about their own faiths and enables them to talk freely to people of other faiths or non.”

Entrance to the Festival of Light, which starts at 6.30pm is free with prior booking.
