Since its pilot in 2007, Lentfest has become the flagship festival of AGAP, involving a wide variety of artists from across every discipline (theatre, music, literature, dance, film and the visual arts) and involving a broad range of people. Embracing the popular and the classical, the contemporary and the traditional, amateur and professional, it is an Imaginative Fusion of Faith and the Arts!
Lentfest 2021 looks set to be a virtual festival, incorporating a variety of digital events that will be broadcast Online. So, for the first time, Lentfest will be a global event! We are looking for events to include in our programme, so if you fancy recording a concert from your bedroom or taking part in one of our interactive events like our art exhibition or poetry corner (more info soon!), please get in touch with us.
PLEASE NOTE: We are currently taking a break due to the current restrictions facing the wider Glasgow area and especially the arts industry. We hope to resume our activities in mid-January 2021, when we will aim to produce a limited digital Lentfest and hold live events later in the year
Our Ethos We are a non-profit organisation that exists to encourage the active participation of all people in the life of the Catholic Church through the arts and to facilitate opportunities for people of various ages and abilities to take part. We are inclusive and do not include events or performances that are likely to encourage bigotry or hatred of any kind, against any group or individual. Whilst not all events in our programme are overtly religious, we only include events or individuals that are respectful of our Catholic/Christian ethos. We do not pay fees to participants but rely on good will and the application of peoples God-given talents. Our ticket prices are very low to maximise engagement.
