Glasgow’s annual West End Festival is definitely one for the cultural calendar and is back to wow the crowds this summer with unique performances, workshops, exhibitions, music, tours and much much more. Sprinkled far and wide across countless venues throughout the West End, each unique event radiates it’s own brand of magic.

Many events are free of charge such as the fascinating Women, War & The West End Exhibition in the historical Tenement House and The West End Festival at The Bandstand – at Kelvingrove Bandstand for a full-on line-up of world class acts in association with the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and Glasgow Life.

Ticketed events include Family Silent Disco at Grosvenor Cinema – Get into the groove at their first ever family-friendly silent disco party. Dress up in your best dancing outfit, pop on the headphones supplied, tune in and get partying! Enjoy face-painting, glitter tattoos and prizes for the best dancers along with a buffet and soft drinks.

Don’t miss the Float Parade. Scores of dancers from our cosmopolitan city strut their stuff along Byres Road accompanied by floats and huge parade vehicles – painting the town red amid the diverse ethnicity Byres Road and our fair city represents.
