It's Glasgow Festival time

15 Jul 2009

Two of Glasgow's best loved festivals are back with fun-filled action on water and land. The first exciting instalment - the Glasgow River Festival - kicks off on the 25th & 26th of July in and around the Tall Ship, SECC and Glasgow Science Centre and promises to be a spectacular two day nautical celebration. 

No sooner than you've steadied your sea legs, the second action-packed weekend - the Glasgow Show - takes place on the 1st and 2nd of August at Glasgow Green and will feature exciting entertainment and activities for all the family.

Locals, day-trippers and tourists alike can look forward to two weekends of adrenaline-fuelled action and spectacular stunts on water and land with both of these exciting festivals.

The Lord Provost, Bob Winter, said: "I am delighted to announce that the people of Glasgow, and visitors to the city, can now enjoy two consecutive weekends of family entertainment in and around two of the city's most iconic locations, the River Clyde and Glasgow Green.

"The festivals highlight ways to enjoy the city on both water and land and the strength of this year's programme emphasises Glasgow's versatility as a place for people to work, live and play.

"I encourage everyone to come along and enjoy themselves during Glasgow Festival Time and celebrate all the things that make Glasgow such a vibrant and inspiring city."
