Life-size replica of ‘separation’ WALL in Piccadilly – seen it yet?
On 23rd of December 2013, Bethlehem Unwrapped festival opened with the unveiling of a 8m high life size replica of the separation wall that has been built by Israel in the West Bank. It has been constructed over 8 days in the church yard of St James' near Piccadilly Circus in central London in a bid to bring some reality of what it is like to live in Bethlehem in 2013. Tipping Point co-founder Justin Butcher is the Bethlehem Unwrapped festival director and the person behind the WALL concept; Deborah Burton is the event co-producer; and Tipping Point board member, actor Adjoa Andoh is taking part in the closing ceremony on 5th January. We are very proud partners on this imaginative and much-talked about Christmas event and salute Lucy Winkett, Rector, the clergy, wardens, PCC, staff & congregation of St James’s Piccadilly for their courage in welcoming this initiative at their church. “Bethlehem Unwrapped” WALL comes down – photos & videos
