The jewel in the festival’s crown will be the free programme of community events across the West End, such as The Big Sunday at Kelvingrove Bandstand, Vinicombe Street Gala, Bard in the Yard in Kelvingrove Park and Queen Margaret Drive Festival.

In addition look out for fire shows, outdoor ceilidhs, choral events, brass band concerts and lots more free events.

WestFest’s Director is Brendon McIlroy who founded the festival in response to ‘overwhelming demand’ for community and cultural events in the West End, in the absence of former festivals

As well as their events programme, WestFest has a commitment to outreach and education with a range of workshops and projects planned with community groups and a schools book programme which has been ongoing since October last year.
