THEY have become a familiar sight in Huddersfield’s communities.

Places of worship across Kirklees will be opening their doors for a three-day multi-faith festival.

It will mean people of different faiths can see what happens in the Christian churches, the Sikh Temples and the Muslim mosques.

Treasures Revealed in Kirklees, organised by Kirklees Faiths Forum takes place every year and this year runs from July 13 - 15.

The main aim is to encourage understanding and build relationships between the various faith communities that make Kirklees such a culturally and spiritually rich and diverse place to live.

A number of places of worship will be opening their doors for visitors to learn about their beliefs and practices. There will be guided tours, music, food and much more for curious local residents to experience at various participating venues.

Zainab Akudi, administrative officer with Kirklees Faiths Forum, said: “Kirklees is home to so many fascinating faiths and is an opportunity to share those hidden treasures.

“It’s a chance for everyone to explore the beautiful and interesting faith buildings, and to meet and talk with those who worship there, to learn and ask questions, and to get to know our neighbours.”
