GRF at the Aye Write! festival

GRF’s smallVOICE podcast is hosting an event at this year’s Aye Write! which is Glasgow’s popular and well-established book festival.

At 6pm on Saturday 18 April we are delighted to welcome Rev Dave Tomlinson. Dave Tomlinson was vilified in the tabloid press as ‘the villains’ vicar’ after taking the funerals of two Great Train Robbers, including Ronnie Biggs’ in 2014. For ten years, Dave led a church gathering in a pub in Clapham; he is a rubbish birdwatcher, a Liverpool supporter and he is convinced that God shouldn’t be left in the hands of the religious.

smallVOICE brings Dave to Aye Write for an honest, maybe controversial, but always eminently reasonable session about finding God.

The session will be chaired by smallVOICE presenter Darrem McKinnon, and other members of the GRF Team will be at the event. Do come along, enjoy the session, and say hello!

Tickets are £9 and you can book online at or by telephone 0141 353 8000 or in person at The Mitchell Library. Check out the smallVOICE website at for updates and news.

GRF at SOLAS Festival 25 – 27 June

SOLAS is a new Arts & Music Festival, co-sponsored by Christian Aid Scotland and Greenbelt Festivals, and is taking place at Wiston Lodge, Biggar this weekend (25 – 27 June).

And GRF will be there! If you are coming to the festival, keep an eye out for us. We will have a stand for the whole weekend in the exhibition area. Come and chat with us, listen to some audio samples – perhaps take part in a quick radio interview!

SOLAS (Gaelic for ‘light’) will be an all-age weekend with a mix of music, debate, theatre, comedy, film and visual art. It aims to provide a space to celebrate and deepen participants’ commitment to art, faith and justice.
