Prom Praise – Chariots of Fire

May 4 @ 19:30

A century ago, Olympic sprinter and Christian missionary Eric Liddell refused to compete in his favoured 100 metre race because it was held on a Sunday. Instead, he competed in the 400 metres… and won. Liddell’s story and the convictions that motivated him formed the foundations for the 1981 film Chariots of Fire. Originally attributed to the Biblical stories of Elijah and Elisha, the title was inspired by a line from William Blake’s poem ‘And did those feet in ancient time’ - now best known in the popular hymn ‘Jerusalem.’

As the Olympics return to Paris in 2024 and to mark the 100th anniversary of Liddell’s remarkable race, we will be drawing inspiration from his tale of integrity, presenting an evening of musical sportsmanship that champions perseverance, character and hope.

Join us for Prom Praise 2024: Chariots of Fire - a whirlwind of musical energy, celebrating an Olympic year and worthy of this giant of sport and faith.
