GLASGOW GREEN FAN ZONE CULTURAL PROGRAMME
Down at the UEFA EURO 2020 Fan Zone in Glasgow Green, it’s not just about the football! There’s a packed programme of largely free cultural activity for you to enjoy through the tournament.
Enjoy the sights, sounds and excitement of live entertainment again on the Green, with everything from contemporary and traditional music, comedy and drag nights to cinema, dance and family entertainment on offer between now and 11 July.
The cultural programme kicked off this week with Wee Write storytelling sessions with some celebrated children’s authors and continues on Sunday 20 June – World Refugee Day – with an afternoon of special music and dance performances from Refugee Festival Scotland.
Visitors to the Green can also expect fantastic performances from some of Scotland’s most exciting musicians. Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite will spin some tunes from his vinyl collection, funk soul act Tom McGuire & The Brassholes will join a bill of emerging talent for a paid-for New Music Night and festival favourites Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5 will close the party on the afternoon of Sunday 11 July ahead of the EURO 2020 final.
The programme will give visitors a flavour of some of the city’s most-loved festivals, including two evenings of entertainment from Celtic Connections as well as a night programmed by the Glasgow Jazz Festival. Wee Write is also programming another pop-up on the Green with a big screen storytelling session with celebrated children’s authors. Glasgow Film Festival will present a football-themed movie night showing Gregory’s Girl and Diego Maradona.
Queens on the Green will see a glittery night celebrating Scottish drag as Drag Race UK stars Lawrence Chaney and Ellie Diamond take to the stage alongside a line-up of local drag acts for one of the chargeable events.
Comedy fans can purchase tickets for Funny at the Fan Zone with Susie McCabe and Soccer FM, featuring Ray Bradshaw, Steven Mill, Billy Kirkwood, and more. The laughs will continue a chat from Fred Macaulay and Friends featuring Chris Forbes.
