The Festival will kick-off on the evening of Friday 9th August with a “Stay Up Late” event taking place in the main Festival venue, the Student Union at the University of Strathclyde. This party atmosphere will provide an effective curtain-raiser for the Festival, and we hope as many people as possible will make it along on the night.
On Saturday 10th August we will have full programme of events from morning until early evening. The Strathclyde Student Union will again provide the main venue, but several additional venues will be in use throughout the day between there and the river Clyde, taking in the “Merchant City”. The programme will contain a varied mixture of music, dance, drama, poetry, debate, discussion, and the testing out of new ideas. There will be plenty to eat and drink and an inclusive invitation to all who are interested in celebrating equality amid diversity.
The festival will have 7 zones mirroring Citizen Network’s 7 keys to citizenship – Love Life Home Freedom Help Purpose Money – the very basic things we all need to play our full part in our local communities and within society more generally.
Entry to the Festival will be free of charge.
