Glasgow’s Lord Provost, Bob Winter, said: “Thousands look forward to Glasgow’s Hogmanay as the ultimate way to welcome in the New Year. George Square is always a special place approaching the bells as revellers from all round the world take in the wonderful atmosphere. What could be better than a New Year ceilidh to celebrate and showcase Glasgow over the festive period?”
