The celebration amplifies on the 25th of November when George Square debuts with an ice rink, setting the stage for gliding memories. Add to that the excitement of a silent disco, sipping on holiday spirits at the festival bar, and an assortment of festive rides and attractions, including a big wheel, helter-skelter, and a traditional carousel. For those seeking a quieter experience, the sensory and quiet zone caters to guests with sensory sensitivities, ensuring a comfortable and inclusive environment.


For the first time in 2023, George Square is proud to present a new community hub, organised by The Clutha Trust, designed to celebrate and spotlight local artists and performers. Talented locals, from dancers to musicians, are encouraged to join the festive lineup. Potential stars are invited to book their performance slot by emailing
