In beautiful surroundings of St Luke’s Church, north London, on Wednesday 4 June at 7.30pm, 90 guests joined us for the premiere of our short documentary about the Bethlehem Unwrapped festival at St James’s Church Piccadilly last Christmas. There was also an auction of the graffitied Wall panels – a historic snapshot of when the Wall came to London.
Justin Butcher, Creative Director of the Bethlehem Unwrapped gave a lovely introduction and update on the ongoing activities of the Bethlehem Unwrapped. We then showed all the content that was projected onto the Wall during the festival and premiered the Bethlehem Unwrapped documentary by Tom Pursey. It was fun, inspiring and moving, and received excellent response from the audience. Zaytoun CIC (artisan Palestinian produce) provided light refreshments during the break.
People from St James’s Church Piccadilly came and did entertaining readings from the visitors book and some of the thousands of emails that were sent in during and after the festival.
Lastly we had the auction – we sold a lot of panels.
BUT some still remain! If you’re interested to know more about the remaining lots we’d be delighted to share more with you.

- “Peace Camel” (Large)
