weeWONDERBOX’s flagship urban festival: ColumbaFest is returning to Glasgow city centre on June 8-10th, 2018. Our theme: ’Dreams & Visions’ … on what makes ‘prophecy’ today.

Contributors

You can expect live music and spoken word, workshops, walks, talks and worship led by a fantastically diverse group of contributors including Pádraig Ó Tuama, Ian Bradley, John L. Bell, Alyson Hallet, Lorraine McIntosh, Andy Thornton, David Heavenor, The Hazels, Carol Marples, Craig Gardiner … More to be confirmed soon.

Prophets often come from the margins, challenging our complacent worldview with a startling new perspective. We will be asking – where are the prophets today? What are they saying? And are we listening to them?

Thus, we will be drawing inspiration from the life of St Columba, the biblical prophets, and contemporary politics to challenge ourselves to engage with the most pressing issues of social justice in our society.

So, come for a day, an evening, or for the entire weekend.

Look out for updates

    l once met a scholar from St Andrews who was doing her Phd on St Colimba and I aked her what we REALLY knew about him…she paused…well we know that he Probably existed! Very good luck with it though, we all need hope to see us through the night.

    hi Maxwell, ta for your kind good wishes. A couple of workshops will be dealing with this very thing … Ian Bradley reassessing Columba and Celtic Christianity; and Glaikit Carnyx investigating the real Columba in music, song and story. It’ll be compelling stuff! gx
