with refugee communities & schools in Coventry
part of Coventry City of Culture

This powerful, emotional piece by Liz Dilnot Johnson brings different communities and artforms together – within the framework of a Requiem – in response to the human tragedy of war and displacement, and celebrates those who offer refuge and hope.

Coventry is one of the leading cities for the resettlement of refugees, and this performance in Coventry Cathedral – next to the bombed ruins of the old building – promises to be a particularly poignant moment during its City of Culture year.

This concert will end at approximately 6.30pm.
