Dear God...
“The ocean is like God and raindrops are the religion. When they fall into the ocean they become one.”

Festival 2020

Just Festival has been an important part of the Edinburgh Fringe for many years – 2020 being our 20th anniversary.

Despite the strange and unusual circumstances of 2020 we decided to carry on and rethink our programme in a way that would best maintain the unique spirit of the Just Festival, and create the space for people to gather online to discuss those issues that most affect our lives today with our fantastic range of eclectic and expert panellists. We discussed the role of faith during the pandemic, what trust looks like now in political life, the moral and societal response to a vaccination, and what allies can do to support the black lives matter movement.  

We hope you can catch up with some of our events available online. Please look at our website and watch our YouTube channel.

As this year has brought serious difficulties to our lives, and we are mindful of the insecurity left by the lockdown for many people and as a result of moving online we discovered a new accessible and international format that we intend to build upon in the future.  

Just Festival will be back for ‘coming of age’ celebrations in 2021 with a full hybrid online and live programme including a new touring exhibition of British and Japanese contemporary artists, incorporating 140,000 origami Peace Cranes in St Johns, and a groundbreaking documentary-theatre piece from Northern Ireland “Blood Red Lines” by Robert Rae.

Please watch this space and keep an eye on our website for 2021 updates.
