Our brochure is almost finished, and you can sign up on the homepage to receive an email as soon as it’s ready. In the meantime, keep 26th – 28th September 2019 free, so that you’ll be able to enjoy our selection of free tours and lunchtime recitals, alongside an exciting programme of evening events in the Cathedral and Drygate Brewery. With music ranging from Mozart to jazz/fusion, and events from spoken word to dance, we’re sure there’s something for everyone!
Thanks to all our artists, audiences and festival staff for another great Glasgow Cathedral Festival. With several thousand visitors to the cathedral over the week (and our Mackintosh exhibition still running) we are delighted to know that the festival is still popular, and still growing.
We’ll be getting some videos and photos online soon so you can relive the highlights – but in the meantime we’re going to have a rest to recover from what was a very busy week!
Our 2018 programme is now public, with brochures are available to collect from the cathedral and various other locations throughout Glasgow. We hope you like what's inside, and look forward to seeing you at some of our events!
A few weeks after GCF2017 we said a sad farewell to John Slack, Festival Manager for our first two years, who has recently moved to London, where most of his time is spent running Berkeley Ensemble and teaching. Without John's expertise and hard work the Festival wouldn't have enjoyed such a successful start, so we wish him all the best for his future plans, and thank him for his excellent work for GCF.
The Festival Board have met several times since then, and are delighted today to announce the appointment of Rachel Thomas and David Lee to the GCF team, taking on the respective roles of Festival Manager and Development Manager. Rachel and David both have experience working in arts organisations at the forefront of their sectors (Royal Opera House and Dunedin Consort respectively), and we hope that their collective skillsets will allow GCF to consolidate and improve, ensuring that Glasgow can be proud of its sustainable and diverse chamber-arts festival for years to come.
Our 2018 programme is taking shape, so please use the sign-up form on our homepage to subscribe to our mailing list, and we'll let you know as soon as it's ready to launch!
