Glasgow Loves St Andrew's Day

Come together down to Glasgow On Ice this St Andrew’s Day, and enjoy a skate with a Scottish twist.

On the ice, the music will be strictly Scotia! Off the ice, and there’s plenty to keep you entertained, with Scottish food and drink, the fairground, pop up pipes and a visit from the Big Boys!

Later that night, on the front of the City Chambers we present a snapshot of Scotland on this one day. From the culinary choices to the partying possibilities we’ll show St Andrew’s Day celebrations as a chance to gather and begin the winter and festive season with aplomb, with an intimate light show.

6.00pm – 9.00pm Gunna Sound
Gunna Sound's repertoire includes a full selection of round the room Ceilidh dances, and an extensive song list that usually invokes the comment at the end of the night, ‘so you’re not just a Ceilidh band!’

The boys try and cater for all tastes and their musical influences range from John Prine, Steve Earle, and the Saw Doctors to Norman MacLean, Graham Mitchell and the Wallochmor Ceilidh Band, along with some good humour and craic!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
