The city of Glasgow has been affected by the ongoing stresses and challenges of the pandemic. We have worked hard to ensure that the St Mungo Festival takes place in 2021 albeit mostly in an online environment. While the majority of the Festival events will be presented online, we aim to retain the essence of what the Festival was founded to celebrate: St Mungo, Glasgow, the city’s history and people.

We anticipate that we will still be facing some forms of restrictions in January and we will be presenting our lecture series on Zoom. In addition to viewing the lectures you will be able to participate in the question and answer sessions that will follow each lecture. For some events you will be able to email questions in beforehand and you will also be able to submit questions during the event. The chairperson will direct the questions to the speaker at the event.

The Festival will also feature some short presentations and conversations on topics of interest, such as the meaning of Glasgow’s Coat of Arms – why is there a fish in a tree? – and the manuscript of the Life of St Mungo written by Bishop Jocelin which is kept in the city’s Mitchell Library.

There will be a physical event: the walk along the Molendinar on St Mungo’s Feast Day will take place with limited numbers.

There are many interesting and stimulating lectures, talks and events taking place and we hope you are able to attend as many as possible.
