Celebrating Columba: St. Columba, the Bard

Thursday 1 July 2021


The patron saint of poetry, Columba is remembered as a teacher of literacy, a defender of bards, a transcriber of manuscripts - and a hero immortalised in the words of others.

In this workshop, poet in residence Alex Aldred will lead discussions and writing exercises responding to St. Columba's poetic legacy.

The event will be online and interactive through Zoom. Participants will require something to write with - either pen and paper or a mobile phone/computer will work fine.
