At 12pm a coach will depart to begin the Southwark i-Witness Trail, where guests will be taken to Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist centres including the Kagyu Samye Dzong Buddhist centre in Bermondsey, St Peter's Church Walworth, and the Peckham Islamic Centre.

Visitors will be given a guided tour of the venues and a presentation of their beliefs with a special emphasis on how each contributes to the life of the wider community.
