Advent Rhymes event logo - half blue, half white

For the last 6 years, Holy City has collaborated with the wonderful Pádraig Ó Tuama in offering an Urban Retreat in Advent in Glasgow’s city centre. This is the now the 7th glorious occasion.

This year, Pádraig will engage with poetry … about religion, Christmas, Mrs Claus and other tinselled characters. Pádraig will bring some examples and retreat participants are invited to do the same.

These poems will be used to talk about Advent, Christmas, our stories and our cities, to engage in discussions and delights.
