Christmas on Byres Road

About Christmas on Byres Road

Kicking off Crimbo, join us to turn on the Byres Road Christmas tree lights with a day of festive fun in the West End.

On Vinicombe Street...
Our wee Christmas market begins at noon with a selection of local traders selling gifts, crafts, food & drink.

Entertainment on the main stage is from 2.30 pm with choirs, covers and bags of festive cheer!!

Family fun will carry on all day in Creswell, Ruthven & Ashton lanes, more info to follow so keep your eyes peeled!

We are also delighted to announce that we are partnering with the Beatson Cancer Charity, who will be with us on the day with their market stall & friendly volunteers selling Beatson baubles.

Then onto the main event! The Christmas tree lights will be switched on at 6.30 pm by the adorable Beatson mascot Bella!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Christmas on Byres Road are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
