The Festival of Spirituality and Peace
Our aim is to encourage community by exploring diversity. We don't all have to agree but it doesn't need to be a problem. FoSP provides a platform for people to explore their own spirituality by engaging with other people's, to promote peace.
FoSP is one of Edinburgh's most exciting and diverse Festivals. It features 300 activities in 200 events across 15 venues each year in August. With top-quality speakers, conversations, performances, film, food, exhibitions, family activities, workshops, art, culture and more the festival is now looking forward to its twelfth year.
