Hogmanay 2018

Hey guys,

I've saw that the fireworks at George Square were cancelled. So I was wondering if you could recommend me a place to watch the fireworks at midnight in Glasgow.

Also if you could recommend me any good pub with some local music that celebrates Hogmanay I would be really grateful :D

Thanks ahead

Glasgow is not big on fireworks for Hogmanay, there haven't been any in George Sq for years as far as I can recall. Edinburgh is the place to be

They weren’t cancelled! You can’t cancel something that hasn’t happened for going on a Decade now!

Ashton Lane has a Street Party c/w Fireworks, but! it’s £25 a ticket!

Here’s a wee tip!

Stand in nearby Great George Street, about halfway up, and watch them for free!

Pubs? Actually a lot of Pubs close early on NYE, those that stay open mainly have a ticket policy or at best limit access after 11pm!

To be fair if you internet search for 'george square glasgow hogmanay fireworks' it does indeed bring you to an article on the BBC saying that they have been cancelled, albeit from July 2011.

That’s correct Ian, Hogmanay 2010 was indeed the last year they were held.

Glasgow isn't really a bit NYE city - it's too cool for that :P

There are some lists of things going on but as I said, most Glaswegians I know would rather spend time with their friends in a house party than go out in the freezing cold at New Year. It is a 365 day a year city so events, gigs and festivals are spaced throughout the year rather than focussing on a single day.
