About Crossmyloof BREAD Festival

We are delighted to announce what we think is Glasgow’s first ever Bread Festival! It’s the Crossmyloof Bread Festival and is taking place in Crossmyloof Bakery Lane behind the Glad Cafe and Camphill Gate, 968 Pollokshaws Road, on Saturday April 21st from 11 am – 4pm.

There will be stalls selling bread and other baking (Baikhous, High Rise Bakers, Freedom Bakery, Wild Flours and others), hot food (Ranjit’s Kitchen), Coffee (Dear Green) and soft drinks (Ginger Drinks Co); musical entertainment (Glad Community Choir, Sprog Rock, Glad Drum School); Crossmyloof Bakery Trail tours; and big talks from Gerry Hassan and Andrew Whitley (Bread Matters), and short talks from Catriona Milligan (High Rise Bakers), Matt Fountain (Freedom Bakery) and others.

An evening gig for over 18s, Songs of Protest and Hope, will feature Kathryn Joseph, Biff Smith and friends (A New International), Vinnie Blackwell (Trembling Bells) with Marco Rea (The Wellgreen), and Emily Scott (Modern Studies) and friends. (gig tickets £7: www.thegladcafe.co.uk)

The festival will launch a number of Heritage Lottery funded activities to highlight the amazing philanthropic work of Neale Thomson in the 1840 and ‘50s. These will take place throughout the summer and will involve tours for adults and primary school children as well as a number of educational resources: website, map, school worksheets.

A theme of the festival is ‘bread and roses’ and alludes to a political slogan ‘The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too’. This inspired the song Bread and Roses[ by James Oppenheim, written in 1911. The slogan was an appeal for both fair wages and dignified conditions, and has enormous resonance for the lengths to which Neale Thomson went to reform the working conditions of journeyman bakers in the middle of the 19th century.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Crossmyloof BREAD Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
