ghill fest

21 until 31 August, 2020

Govanhill International Festival – now in its fourth year, is an anti-racist festival. It celebrates the contribution immigrants have made to the diversity, culture, community and the rich history of the area.

Elven days of film, music, books, talks, walks, art, kids activities and more! Join in and celebrate the diversity, culture, and community of Govanhill.

For safety, many events will be held online and those indoor will be ticketed and limited to manageable numbers.

All events being held indoors, or in confined outdoor spaces, will be ticketed and limited to manageable numbers. To avoid more people turning up on the day, the venue will only be advertised to ticket holders. Sadly the Carnival will not be taking place this year.
