We were honoured that six Carmelite nuns from the Wolverhampton Carmel were present for the arrival of the relics and stayed throughout the night vigil. They were able to meet some of the cast from the Divine Comedy and given an impromtu performance of two of the scenes! They seemed hugely amused as one of the demons proclaimed "I loathe Carmelites!"

An enormous team of volunteers worked to steward and refresh our pilgrims, as well as provide First Aid and man the bookstall. Here, ready to serve cups of tea:
