Celebrate Guy Fawkes in Glasgow Green, with Glasgow’s infamous and spectacular musical fireworks display.
The Guy Fawkes (or Bonfire Night) celebrations in Glasgow Green are back for another year on the 4th of November 2015.
***Yes, that’s right – the 4th of November. Glasgow City Council have changed the date of Guy Fawkes celebrations in Glasgow Green so that it doesn’t clash with a Celtic match on the 5th. Bonfire night is coming early this year. (At least it’s not Christmas, I suppose…)***
The Glasgow fireworks show offers a free, safe and family oriented evening of fun. Pre-show entertainment will be provided by local radio stars from 6.30pm, the funfair and onsite catering will be available from 5pm. Don’t miss one of the greatest events in Glasgow’s calendar!
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!
This year’s theme hasn’t been announced yet, but last years theme was “The Stars of 2014” and was geared around the Commonwealth Games.
Even though in Glasgow we love to call the 5th (or rather, the 4th) “bonfire night”, there is no bonfire at Glasgow Green.
You should enter Glasgow Green from the west end of the park, any entrance on the Saltmarket or Greendyke Street is suitable as the other sides will have no public entry.
Entry is free, and it is usually very busy. Last year more than 50,000 people turned up to watch the fireworks at Glasgow Green! Make sure you get there early for a good view (unless you’re 7ft tall).
Road Closures – If your driving on the 4th please be aware of road closures on Greendyke Street, Charlotte Street, Montieth Row and Montieth Place. These roads will be closed to vehicles between 4pm and 9pm.
Access via St Andrew’s Bridge and the River Walkway will be closed from 5pm on 4th November and will not re-open until 8am on 5th November.
For Your Safety
- Do not bring fireworks, sparklers, alcohol or pets to the Glasgow Green fireworks.
- Follow the directions of stewards and police
- Dress appropriately – We live in Glasgow and there is always a good chance we will get rubbish weather!
Like all outdoor events, the weather may cause the event to be postponed or cancelled. We will keep you as updated as we can!
