Schedule
Over the years we've had such a great time of having the British Gala Festival at the Grace & Holy Trinity Cathedral, but the parking at that location has always been a little hit, and miss with drivers that seem to just park at the cathedral, and take off to an event elsewhere.

This year, we've taken the festival to a totally new location, still in Kansas City, Missouri, but a much bigger car park for our visitors.

We have a host of British businesses, and services, and entertainers to be at the Gala, so please take a look below to see what they have to offer..
