As part of the One Tree Hill Festival each Sunday morning at St Augustine’s we will be looking a different responses to God. Taking themes from Victor Hugo’s novel Les Miserables we will be joined each week by West end performers who will be singing exerts from the musical. Each week they will be interviewed by Lisa Olsworth-Peter who played factory girl and Madam Thenardier in the West End production reflecting on the themes of the score. Through three of Hugo’s characters we will use their stories to explore their different responses to God found in the lyrics of their songs and ask how they inspire and challenge us in our own lives.

Caroline will also be talking about the character of Fantine, who she was, her place in Victor Hugo's novel and what the song is about -how the theme of sacrifice is a big part of Fantine's story.
