Now in its fifth year, Govanhill International Festival began in 2016 as an antidote to racism towards migrant communities. It started as a carnival, parade and weekend of music, aiming to celebrate the diversity of the area and combat division and hate. It has since grown into a beautiful, two-week extravaganza, embodying the richness and diversity of the flourishing arts and culture scene in Govanhill. This program features over fifty events – including talks, music, workshops, film, exhibitions, theatre, heritage events, and guided walks. At its heart, the Govanhill International Festival and Carnival is an anti-racist festival: celebrating the contributions immigrants have made to a community that is home to people of 40+ nationalities speaking 60+ languages. Keep an eye on their Facebook and Twitter pages for more information. Check out the full program here.    

Hannah Frank’s family was among thousands of Jewish families who came to Glasgow from Eastern Europe at the turn of the last century and we are proud to take our place at this festival!
