Glasgow Green Fireworks

glasgow-green-fireworks5th November 2013

Location:  Glasgow Green

Tickets:  This event is free, and no ticket is required

Celebrate Guy Fawkes in Glasgow Green, with Glasgow’s infamous and spectacular musical fireworks display.

The night is not just about fireworks though; there will be pre-show music and fun, a funfair and food and drink stalls.  Enough to make sure that everyone is entertained!

The Glasgow fireworks show offers a free, safe and family oriented evening of fun.  Pre-show entertainment will be provided by local radio stars Romeo and Knoxy from 6.30pm. Don’t miss one of the greatest events in Glasgow’s calendar!

Stars of 2014 – Three of Scotland’s most promising athletes, Gymnast Cara Kennedy, triple-jumper Morgan McKinnon and swimmer Ruairi Kirkwood will take the stage at Glasgow Gren. They were among the very first people to carry the Queen’s Baton when it began its journey last month and will hope to inspire others to nominate those people who should share in the honour of being a batonbearer when the baton returns to Scotland in June 2014.

Even though in Glasgow we love to call the 5th, “bonfire night”, there is no bonfire at Glasgow Green.

For Your Saftey

  • Do not bring fireworks, sparklers, alcohol or pets to the Glasgow Green fireworks.
