‘the light comes back
the light always comes back’

from In The Mid-Midwinter,
by Liz Lochhead


Welcome to Adventfest 2017 – a wee arts festival for a big time of year…. On the cusp of the festive season we invite you to pause, and come together for a weekend of inspiration – an Advent flicker of light in the winter darkness.


This year we borrow our theme from our special guest artist Liz Lochhead, who will be performing with long-time collaborator, saxophonist Steve Kettley. The season of Advent always reminds us that there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and proceeds from this year’s events will go to support the work of the Rock Trust – working to support young people in Edinburgh who are homeless.


Please see the listings pages for details of the weekend events. For the three events that are ticketed, please follow the links to the EVENTBRITE pages where you can easily reserve and pay for your tickets.
