For the first time in the history of Canterbury Cathedral, the Holy Fools UK will be holding a special service to cerebrate their 25th Silver Anniversary. The Service will take place on Saturday, 15 September at 6pm and will have up to 30 Christian clowns (Holy Fools) in the service, all colourfully made up and in costume ready to present this special service with all the energy and fun that clowns give. The public is warmly invited to the service to join them in this special celebrationI hate clowns.
The Holy Fools is a national Christian organization with members throughout the UK. The aim of the Holy Fools is to use clowning, miming puppetry, dance, storytelling and allied arts in ministry and worship. We make services special, memorable and fun!!.
The National events co-ordinator Richard James said: "We are really looking forward to this special event which is a celebration and an opportunity to entertain the public and show how we use our ministry. Members, some professional clowns, have taken part and performed in hundreds of churches throughout the UK we are always well received and the congregation leaves with a smile on their face. We are an interdenominational organization and we welcome new members who would like to train to become a Holy Fool we help release the clown in you!!
