Thames Valley celebrates centenary of Abdu’l-Baha’s UK visit

An event to celebrate the centenary of Abdu’l-Baha’s visit to the UK has been held by the Thames Valley Baha’i community.

The son of the founder of the religion came over to the west to present his beliefs after he had become leader himself.

The event at Maiden Place Community Centre, in Lower Earley,  included an audio visual presentation and a short play followed by dinner for about 200 people.

Guests included Reading’s two MPs Rob Wilson and Alok Sharma and Reading borough Mayor, Councillor Deborah Edwards.
