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 we are developing a diverse programme of talks, walks, music, art, discussion and worship.

Keep an eye out for programme announcements and booking details coming soon … on our blog, our eNews and the  weeWONDERBOX Facebook and Twitter and the ColumbaFest Instagram pages, for more info as it is released.
