21 & 22 September: Two Days for World Peace in Wrexham

Peace Day Group | 17.09.2014 22:19 | Anti-militarism | Culture | Free Spaces | Wales

Join us once again in Wrexham for a day celebrating peace and calling for an end to all warfare. This day is about coming together and sharing what we have in a spirit of peaceful cooperation. Peace Day events in Wrexham have always been free of charge and open to all. The success of the day is about what each of us brings to it. You are invited to bring vegetarian food to share and items you no longer need for the free stall. If you have anything else you would like to offer free of charge (no selling), please get in touch.

Two Days for World Peace in Wrexham

Poster for Sunday's Peace Day events:

Sunday 21 September is World Peace Day and will be marked in Wrexham this year, as in previous years, by a 'Free for All' event in town during the day, a free live gig in the evening and a Schools Peace Day (on Monday 22 September). All events are organised by a network of groups and individuals coming together as Wrexham Peace Day Group and are designed to be inclusive and open to everyone. In particular, there will be no selling - everything offered on the day has been donated and is free of charge.

11am to 5pm, Llwyn Isaf, Wrexham.

Everyone is invited to bring vegetarian food to share for the Peace Picnic and things they no longer need for the Free Stall.

A Kundalini Yoga session will run from 11am until midday.
At midday, there will be a peace circle ceremony followed by a peace service for those of all faiths and none.
Members of Wrexham Community Choir will then kick off an afternoon of live music, with acts including Heal the Last Stand, Tiny Wooden Angels, Y Gogs, Michelle Murphy & daughter, Jessica Ball, Ellie Larke and with poetry from Sophie McKeand. All performers are offering their services free of charge.
There will also be children's activities, a popcorn stall, bike powered fruit smoothies, massage and storytelling, all free of charge.

from 8pm, Saith Seren, Chester Street, Wrexham

Saith Seren will host the Peace Day 'after show party'. Free entry to see bands including: Skin Tight Poncho, Heartbeat Wunderbar, Mandola Hangover and Modern King.

Stockwell Grove, Wrexham
10am to 2.30pm

This is the third year that a dedicated Peace Day will be held at St. Christopher's Community School in Hightown, with children from at least seven other local schools attending. A team of workshop leaders and volunteers will offer a wide range of activities on the theme of peace. Topics offered this year include conscientious objectors in WWI, the lives of children in Afghanistan, how the military engages with young people, peace malas, massage in schools, dealing with negative feelings, Sikh seva, singing, poetry, art and craft.

Coleg Cambria will also be taking part in this year's Peace Day, with Maya Evans from Voices for Creative Non-Violence speaking with students in Wrexham on Monday about the lives of women in Afghanistan.

Wrexham Peace Day Group member Genny Bove said:

"As the west is gearing up for more military intervention in countries from Iraq to Ukraine, Peace Day is a worldwide call for all countries and peoples to acknowledge that violence breeds violence, that peace cannot be achieved through warfare, and to seek peaceful and just solutions through negotiation, mutual respect and understanding. Peace begins at home and Wrexham's Peace Days are all about peace building through community co-operation."
