Religious Tolerance Forum: coming up in March

This year’s Religious Tolerance Forum will take place on Saturday 10th March 2018, 10am-1pm at The Well in Retford (DN22 7BD). BCH are grateful to Bassetlaw District Council for their continued support for this event.

This year’s speakers include Dr David Appleby, Lecturer in Early Modern British History at the University of Nottingham, and adviser to the National Civil War Museum. David will be speaking about freedom and persecution in the post civil war era. Masoud Ahmadi from the International Liberty Association will talk about his escape from persecution, and Phil Lyons, CEO of the National Holocaust Centre, will describe the work done at the Centre and discuss the use of survivor testimony and recent innovations, including the Forever project.

We are also pleased to welcome Ben Huxtable of Release International and Andrew Smith of Open Doors. This year’s event will feature a video of an interview with Dr Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, University of Cambridge, and former Archbishop of Canterbury.
