The programme also makes space for challenging debate with activists, writers and thinkers from across the political, cultural and religious spectrum.Solas Festival offers a creative and entertaining programme for festival-goers of all ages in a safe environment.
Below the Solas surface
Solas Festival derives inspiration and values from its roots in the broad Christian tradition. This underpins our commitment to equality, justice, beauty and hospitality. Our aim is to create a space which is tolerant, inclusive and free of prejudice.
Solas Festival has a heart for justice in our global outlook and in the running of the festival. Campaigning organisations work closely with us and help ensure that issues of social justice and responsibility feature in our programming.
How we work
Solas Festival is keen to keep an open mind and, as such, we are not sole operators but prefer to work with partners. We also encourage artists not only to showcase their own work, but to help bring out the artist in everyone.
Managed by a board of volunteer directors, the day-to-day running is also carried out by volunteers, with the exception of two part-time paid workers.
