Glasgow’s festive winter celebrations start officially on Thursday 15 November 2012.


George Square Christmas Lights 2010

George Square Christmas Lights 2010

The first event is the switching on of Glasgow’s Christmas Lights at George Square.

For good or bad Glasgow instigated a ‘fair ticket policy.

That means if you wanted to join in the live event you had to enter a ballot which was CLOSED on September 30th.

However, if like us you are in offices, hotels or restaurants close by, like the glass fronted Brasserie on George Square in the Millennium Hotel Glasgow for instance, you will still get to see the fun and frolics as George Square’s monuments and Christmas tree are lit up once again.





The Winterfest public events will continue with:


Glasgow On Ice Rink 2010

Skating in Glasgow Square 2010

The Glasgow Style Mile Parade – Buchanan Street on 18th November.
Glasgow On Ice – skate under the stars in the open-air ice rink returns from 24 November
Glasgow Loves St Andrew’s Day – join the shindig from 30 November – 2 December
Glasgow Loves Hogmany – celebrate from 12 noon until 10pm on 31st December



You can find out more details of all these events on the Glasgow Loves Christmas website
