Starting a new festival in the current economic climate is hard, foolhardy perhaps, certainly a little stubborn. But we are absolutely convinced that Scotland needs a Solas Festival. We believe that the arts are important, even when money is tight. We believe that questioning is vital, especially when difficult decisions are being made and that faith can be a source of inspiration in every context.
Solas Festival depends on enthusiastic and skilled volunteers. If you feel that you could support us by lending a helping hand, please take a look at our volunteers page.
If you share our vision for Solas Festival, you might wish to consider contributing financially, by making a donation, fundraising on our behalf or becoming a Solas Saint. What’s not to like? Why not add a top-up donation when you buy your tickets? If you fill out the Gift Aid declaration, then even good old David and Nick will have to send some money our way. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you could help with our fundraising.
Our community of ‘Saints’ commit to a regular monthly donation to Solas Festival, providing increased stability and vital cash-flow between festivals. As our core supporters, the Saints are at the heart of our community and have a key influence on the future shape and direction of the festival. They also get some jolly perks like free downloads and early updates on the planning process – all for as little as £5 a month…Find out how to become a Solas Saint.
