Lambeth 98 will close with a hiss and a bang tomorrow evening

After the closing Eucharist in the plenary halls, a barbecue for all 2,000 Conference participants will get sizzling on the lawns in front of the Spouses' HomeTent.

The 21-piece Beverly Big Band is set to provide music for listening and dancing,and a fireworks display will light up the Canterbury sky and cap off the Conference around 11.30pm.

Fruit juice and water will be free throughout the evening, while tickets for alcohol will be available from the bars. Vegetarian food also will be served at the barbecue stations.

The fireworks display has been put together by Kimbolton,which also did the displays for VJ Day in London and the UK ceremony marking the handover of Hong Kong.
