ColumbaFest

A seasonal celebration of faith, culture, politics and creativity

 

ColumbaFest, weeWONDERBOX’s flagship urban festival, returns to Glasgow on 7-9th June 2019.

This year’s theme – ‘Wandering + Wondering‘ – invites us to consider the physical, spiritual and emotional journeys, voyages and pilgrimages we go on in life as we wrestle with faith, politics and art today.

Inspired by the life of St Columba, current global events and a sense of adventure the festival will contain a diverse programme of talks, walks, music, art, discussion and worship.

The full programme can be found here.
