King James Bible Bash

It’s the 400th anniversary of the King James translation of the Bible, and, it being Easter weekend and all, perhaps this is the best time of the year to get a bit Biblical, and mark the occasion. Taking inspiration from the stories at the start of the book – creation and Noah’s Ark – London Word Festival are presenting an eclectic mix of music, art, literature and film in response to this great, influential, controversial and ancient text. Running right through to the apocalyptic imagery of Revelation at the end, with a detour comparing John 3:16 with Austin 3:16, there’ll be a geodesic domes, a man-powered print production line, a score by Carl Brown of the Wave Machines, and Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time on casio. You’ll not see anything like this at your local church this Sunday.
