Christmas Lights Ballot is Open

Christmas Lights Ballot is Open

02/10/2017
​The ballot for tickets for Glasgow’s Christmas Lights switch-on has opened and applications will be accepted until 11.59pm on Sunday 15 October. This year, George Square will have even more new lights and will again be home to a Christmas market.
A total of 16,000 free tickets will be available for the event which marks the start of Glasgow’s countdown to Christmas. Last year we received 56,995 unique applications requesting 272,830 tickets meaning George Square could have been filled more than 16 times over. Just over 10% of all applications were duplicates and were removed from the ballot.
Further information and an entry form are available at www.glasgowloveschristmas.com
Entry to the event on Sunday 19 November is by ticket only with any unclaimed or returned tickets going to people who have already entered the ballot. Each ticket permits access for one person only and all adults and children of all ages must have a ticket to gain access to George Square. Anyone without access to the internet can get help to fill in an application at any one of Glasgow’s Libraries.
In previous years, up to 15% of tickets haven’t been used on the night so organisers are asking people to only request the exact number of tickets they will need. A maximum of 6 tickets can be requested per household and only one application will be accepted per household. 93% of tickets will go to Glasgow addresses.
