Sufi Festival

About Sufi Festival

A day-long festival throughout Tramway and our neighbours The Hidden Gardens, the Sufi Festival will open a door into the art and culture of Sufism, from music, poetry and theatre, to art and craft, storytelling, and ritual ceremonies of devotion.

The day’s events will include practical workshops on the craft of Sufi art, poetry and calligraphy; storytellers and poets; world-class musicians: a bazaar selling traditional handicrafts and of course, food and drink from across the Islamic world. There will also be talks by leading academics and Sufi scholars.

The Sufi Festival also includes accompanying events in Edinburgh and Glasgow leading up to the day of the Sufi Festival.

The Sufi Festival welcomes people of all ages, abilities, faiths, ethnicities, gender identities and mindsets to come and share in an authentic exposition of Sufism organised by practicing Sufis, and a cultural experience of Islamic art, culture and heritage in the heart of Scotland’s most diverse and multicultural community.

Free drop-in event. You can register via Eventbrite www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/sufi-festival-tickets-61270935016

EVENING CONCERT: The day's events will be followed by an evening performance by Qawalli masters Shah e Mardan, tickets £10.

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