Preparing and then clearing Glasgow Green for this event takes several days
Glasgow Life have announced that this years fireworks event at Glasgow green will be cancelled as the city will be hosting COP26 at the same time.
Up to 50,000 people can be expected at Glasgow Green for the free display, but with COP happening, Glasgow Life say that they want the park to remain open to the public rather than have it close for several days to prepare for the event.
“We will be confirming plans for events this winter in the coming weeks which will provide more reasons to plan a visit to Glasgow and support businesses based in the city. Glasgow will be hosting COP26 at the same time as we would normally be hosting a fireworks event for up to 50,000 people. Preparing and then clearing Glasgow Green for this event takes several days and so that Glasgow Green remains available to people in early November we will not be hosting Glasgow Fireworks this year.
Instead our focus is on delivering a winter programme over several weeks which will build on the successes of 2020 which will help boost Glasgow’s economic recovery from the pandemic. We look forward to announcing more details soon.”
