St Mungo Festival 2024

The 2024 Festival is its fifteenth year and will take place 8–14 January. The Festival is organised by The Mediaeval Glasgow Trust, Glasgow Churches Together and Glasgow Life.

The 2024 Festival opens with Dr Gordon Wyllie’s talk at Glasgow’s St Mungo Museum of Religious Life & Art. He’ll delve into how communities, Glasgow’s among them, organised themselves in the Mediaeval period and how the structures they built persist into the present day. Wednesday sees Alan Tavener and the Strathclyde University Chamber choir in a performance of music in honour of St Mungo and Scotland's saints at St Columbkille’s in Rutherglen.

Unfortunately this year’s Molendinar Lecture has had to be postponed but we have a second talk at the St Mungo Museum on Thursday 11th with Professor Elaine Moohan discussing the music sung at Glasgow Cathedral from its foundation up until the 17th century. There will be an opportunity for you to sing!

On the Feast day itself we have three events. The annual walk from Provanmill to the Cathedral in the morning, followed by the ‘Opening of the Vita Kentigerni’ at the Mitchell Library in the afternoon where you can listen to readings from St Mungo’s Life. Also that day we will broadcast our regular discussion between Dr Gordon Wyllie and the Revd Mark Johnston on the Signs and Symbols to be seen in Glasgow Cathedral which you can watch on our YouTube channel.

The Festival concludes on Sunday 14th with the Festival Ecumenical Service held at Glasgow Cathedral. Join the Lord Provost and Civic representatives in honouring Glasgow’s patron Mungo and in celebration of his city.

Full details and tickets for events will be available over the next few days and another email will be sent with links for booking.
