Here in the centre of what used to be the Kingdom of Rheged  we have a fondness for one whom we regard as our local saint, as well as patron saint of Glasgow. There are many churches, wells and other monuments near here- Bromfield Church, the nearby St Mungo's Castle, Kentigern's Church and well in Caldbeck and even Mungrisedale pay tribute to him.  Holme St Cuthbert History Society has some interesting information about him.

There will be poems, harp music and readings from Kathleen Herbert's book Bride of the Spear, which centres on the birth and parentage of Kentigern.  More information on the publisher's blog and website.
