THE West End Festival has announced the popular St Andrew’s Day Torchlight Parade will take place on November 30th.
Vouchers for the winter event are £8 and a donation for every torch sold will be made to a chosen charity.
If you’d like to take part but would rather not hold a torch, tickets are £3 and you’ll receive a wristband instead.
Instead of a torch, children will carry free glow sticks.
The procession will begin at 6pm at Queen Margaret Drive and will make its way down Byres Road before arriving at Kelvin Way at 7.15pm.
Dr Alasdair Allan, minister for International Development and Europe, said the event would be a ‘powerful opportunity’ for people to come together.
He said: “Our patron saint, St Andrew, was known for being strong, sociable and fair, encouraging people to share what they had with those in need.
“Celebrating St Andrew’s Day presents a powerful opportunity for Scots to keep the spirit of St Andrew alive, by coming together and helping others within their community.
“I am sure the torchlight procession produced specifically for St Andrew’s Day will be a spectacular sight as it moves through the west end, accompanied by pipe bands, musicians and fire dancers.”
