Liz Scobie, Chairman of West End Festival said: “We’re delighted that so many organisations develop special productions and events just for the West End Festival.

“Every year we have an eclectic range of events including choral concerts, plays, gigs, children’s activities, foodie events, community gala days and so much more.

“We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the amazing weather continues for us!”

Michael Dale, Festival Director added: “We’ve got some highlight events this year including our own Mansfield Park/Hyndland Street Gala Day, of course the ceilidh at Kelvingrove Art Gallery will return, The Big Sunday is back in Kelvingrove Park for a second year, Oran Mor’s All Dayer is always a triumph and both Ashton Lane and Vinicombe Street are putting on their annual bashes, too.

“Everyone’s invited. Come to the west end and make a day of it!”

The West End Festival runs until Saturday, 30 June.
