Religious festival calendars are available to purchase in a range of formats from the Shap website. Permission to reproduce the information below should be sought from Shap. The Shap calendar of religious festivals was the first calendar of its kind, and is produced in consultation with religious organisations each year.
Note: Jewish festivals commence at sunset on the evening of the day prior to the date shown. Some Muslim, and certain Pagan and Druid festivals also commence in the evening.
IFN has also produced a short guidance note on which of their religious festivals faith communities would appreciate receiving greetings from people of other faiths and beliefs, and suggested forms of greeting. This can be found here.
