Welcome once again to another year of the Southside Festival. Download your official programme now or pick one up from various locations throughout the southside.
As this is the fourth year of the festival we have bent over backwards to respond to the feedback from previous years and included more fun activities for younger members of the community. These include more rides in our exciting Family Fun Zone; an expanded Children’s Entertainment Marquee stuffed with more activities than ever before; a Children’s Dance Marquee that brings the world of dance to your door and provides an opportunity to get on in there.
In our Display Zone we also have a number of interesting activities which include, a first for both the Southside Festival and the GHA – The Big Red Truck. The Fire Brigade also put in an appearance with some exciting fire displays and an opportunity to experience what its like inside a fire appliance.
We have an amazing array of music for your entertainment including music from around the world in the World Cafe and home grown music on the Main Stage and Glasshouses.
All this to much? Then head over to the Earth Zone for some relaxing therapies, Tai Chi or yoga. Don’t forget to stop of at the RSPB stall on your way.
This not enough? Then why not try some retail therapy and investigate the many commercial and community stalls available. There are stalls representing the Baths Trust, Gorbals Recycle and many more community groups. Stalls where you can purchase items of jewellery, clothing and much much more.
Fancy a walk? Then tag along with Bob on one of his many fascinating historical walks around Queens Park or just stroll round to the pond at the Pollokshaws Road end of Queens Park and have a try on the radio controlled boats, mull over the static display or watch a video featuring 100yrs of the RNLI
We have so much to see and do that we almost forgot to mention the procession. Yes the procession why not join in and cheer everyone as they make their way down Pollokshaws Road from Shawlands Academy to the entrance to Queens Park Recreation Grounds via Vicky Road and Langside Road
Not from the southside? Then why not visit this unique part to the city. We will be providing a free regular bus service back and forth to George Square on our fleet of vintage buses.
