St Andrew’s Day Torchlight Parade

The annual Glasgow's St. Andrew's Day Torchlight Parade returns on Saturday 30th November and the West End Festival team invites you to take part!

St Andrew’s Day Torchlight Parade

About St Andrew’s Day Torchlight Parade

Glasgow will host this major event once again and it’s organised by the much-loved West End Festival team and supported by Scotland’s Winter Festivals, Glasgow City Council and Byres Road and Lanes BID.

This year, the experience has been widened further, and as such, will have more family orientated activity, including parents and grandparents helping kids to make lanterns to use in the parade (guided), Scottish myths and fairytale storytelling, and performances by street theatre artists, such as stilt walkers, glow in the dark juggler and fire art. Plus, facepainting artists will be waiting to paint faces (kids young and old!) in the Kibble Palace prior to the parade forming. All of this activity is included in ticket prices.

Vouchers for torches are now on sale and pricing is as follows:
Early bird until 20 October - £5 adult torch, £3 for child, family ticket for four £15
From 21 October - £7 adult torch and £4 child, family ticket for four £20

Tickets via www.torchlightparade.co.uk or by calling 0333 666 3366.

This evening celebration of Scotland’s patron saint will take the form of a torchlit walk passing through the main parts of the west end using a rolling road closure from Glasgow Botanic Gardens. The rolling closure will mean the roads are safe for the procession to walk but will limit any inconvenience to road users.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for St Andrew’s Day Torchlight Parade are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
