I Have Met The Enemy (and the enemy is us)
Sep 27 – Oct 5 all-day

An exciting unique theatre event coming to Bradford from 27th September – 5th October.

What if we said that Britain (this tiny island) is the second biggest arms dealer in the world?

A former British soldier and a Palestinian citizen meet in an intimate and powerful exchange, in a joint attempt to understand the UK arms trade and its impact around the world. Through differing perspectives and a shared love of techno, I Have Met the Enemy (and the enemy is us) takes us on a personal and political journey into the darkest corners of what makes Britain tick.

Common Wealth will transform community spaces into worlds for audiences to explore – worlds charged with light, sound and robotics.

I Have Met the Enemy is part techno party, part investigation and above all else, a call to action.

CAFOD Faith in Action Day – Love is Civic and Political: Our Faith and the Common Good
Nov 2 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

This CAFOD ‘Faith in Action’ day is being organised in various dioceses. This event looks like the nearest one for people in the Leeds Diocese.

What will the day be about? – CAFOD writes

meme of the day's titleFrom Trump to Brexit to climate, politics is everywhere. But when should we pray from the side-lines and when should we roll up our sleeves?

The Church here and around the world has a proud history of encouraging Catholics’ political reflection and action. With amazing results.

At this CAFOD day, we’ll explore the links between faith and politics.

Join us and reflect on Scripture and Church teaching. Be inspired by others and CAFOD’s campaigning and work overseas.

Sign up on their Eventbrite page for this event.
