Now in its fifth season, the festival is becoming an established part of the city’s cultural landscape—promoting Glasgow’s historic quarter as a thriving artistic destination, attracting renowned Scottish and international talent, and engaging the wider community.

Since the first festival in 2016, GCF has welcomed over 13,000 visitors from around the world. Our mission is to bring life to Glasgow’s oldest building whilst finding fresh perspectives on our cultural heritage, by presenting a rich and varied programme of events each year—including music, free tours, exhibitions and installations, dance and film. Our work also extends beyond the cathedral, with events in the neighbouring Drygate Brewery, and an education programme that unites communities and young people across Glasgow.
