Hundreds of Ethiopians made a pilgrimage to Liverpool to mark a 2,000-year-old festival.

Followers of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church descended on Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral to honor the Timkat tradition.

The festival celebrates Jesus’s baptism in the River Jordan with a 24-hour spectacular of singing, chanting and prayer.

One of the highlights of the celebration is the parading of the Tabot – replicas of the tablet of stone on which the 10 commandments were inscribed.

The Ethiopian Orthodox Archbishop of Europe, His Grace Abuna Entonius, led the celebrations alongside dozens of priests and choirs from all over the UK and Europe.

The festival began at 3pm yesterday when the Tabot arrived in Liverpool.

It continued this afternoon with mass, baptizing, chanting, lectures and a short exhibition and Ethiopian food.
