Flame, the biggest Catholic youth event in England and Wales is coming back to the SSE Arena, Wembley this Saturday 2 March 2019.

The venue will be filled with more than 8,000 young people from across the country, receiving faith-filled inspiration from brilliant speakers, including Guvna B and his wife Emma and the inspirational and engaging speaker Robert Madu from the US.
