SENIOR Muslim and Christian clergy will come together in Kirklees to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
A picnic and fun day has been organised for the first public gathering between the two sets of religious leaders.
Community figures of no faith will also be there.
They will be joined by the so-called Vicar of Baghdad, Canon Andrew White, a renowned Middle East peacemaker and former special envoy to the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The event, called the Big Gathering, will be held on Sunday from noon at Wilton Park, Batley.
The Rev Tom Hiney, co-chairman of the North Kirklees Interfaith Council, said: “I worked in South Africa and we have something approaching apartheid happening in Dewsbury and Batley.
“This event is as much about bouncy castles, food-stalls and celebrating the Queen as it is about clergy and community leaders gathering under a tent in the middle of it, ” he added.
