Gary finds abundant faiths at the Festival of Soul, Spirit And Mind, from the Church of the Absent Lord to a church for animals, plus the ubiquitous Bellamy's Babes, who show the devotion of true zealots.

He continues his one-sided discussion with the strangely mute pupils of Newcastle's Bernard-Atwell School; and meets aggressive Australian bar owner Nicky Ambrose.
