Glasgow Cathedral Festival is a celebration of music, art, history and culture, based in Glasgow’s oldest building.

This year’s artists represent the cream of Scottish talent, with some similar events to last year’s favourites—a silent film with live soundtrack, and vocal ensemble music—alongside new experiences for GCF, such as our opening jazz night in Drygate.

We also have guided tours showing unique aspects of the cathedral, an exhibition on Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and a striking audiovisual installation in the Lower Church. See you in October!
