Refugee Festival Scotland

About Refugee Festival Scotland

People from refugee backgrounds make a huge contribution to life in Scotland. We believe that's worth celebrating!

Our unique festival brings people together to meet, mix and get to know each other better.

This year's theme is storytelling. Our stories reflect the journeys our lives have taken and the places we want to go. Everyone has a story to share, and there are so many ways to tell them - through music, dance, food, film, poetry, art and theatre.

Join us from 17 - 26 June to celebrate the stories of people and communities who have settled in Scotland.
