Golowan Festival

Official Website

We want to let everyone know that, even if we are unable to deliver a live out on the streets festival as usual, Golowan 2021 will take place!

The Golowan Team is looking at Covid secure ways to deliver a different kind of festival which will allow the community to celebrate and create a sense of unity and connection in these dislocated times.

More details to come soon!

Market Traders, please note that by the end of March we will have made a decision as to whether any Golowan Street Markets will take place this year.

Golowan is delighted to announce that it has been awarded funding from the Culture Recovery Fund to help the festival overcome all the disappointments and setbacks of the 2020 festival cancellation caused by the Coronavirus lockdown.

The festival organisers are hugely grateful as it means the future of Golowan is much more secure and whatever 2021 holds for us all, one way or another, we will celebrate the Golowan Festival’s 30th anniversary in style!
