Govan Loves Christmas will run from Monday 1st December to Friday 12th December 2014

Welcome to Govan Loves Christmas event 2014. This year’s event is taking the format of the 12 days of Christmas and has something for all of the family and is most certainly a series of events not to be missed.

This year’s event begins on the 1st December with some lantern making across the local primary schools, led by local artists and arts project, Plantation Productions. The lanterns shall be used for the big Christmas Switch On event at Govan Cross on 3rd December. This event is guaranteed to bring some festive cheer to the centre of Govan with a local market, live entertainment, school choirs, appearances from the Govan Allsorts Choir, a live performance from members of African Challenge, a Santa’s Grotto and a full fireworks display and not to forget... the switch on of the Christmas lights. Following this event, there shall be a short parade to Elderpark Library for some extra entertainment and a guest appearance from DJ Steve McKenna.

Over the course of the 12 days there will be a number of Christmas events on across the community, including pantomimes, school choir concerts, a Christmas lunch provided by Macmillan Café and the Govan Weavers, Christmas bingo across various locations, a pampering day, a cabaret event, Christmas shows, a Karaoke Disco and a live music event to name a few.
