"There's more to the evening than flash, bang, wallop...."
You haven't seen fireworks until you've witnessed the bonanza that shakes Glasgow every November. More than 60,000 people make their way to Glasgow Green for a spectacular show, set against the serene backdrop of the Glasgow Winter Gardens. It's a feast for the eyes and Scotland's biggest fireworks display - and it's totally free.
Rockets whiz, scream and explode overhead in a 20-minute performance set to music. But there's more to the evening than flash, bang, wallop - the fireworks might be the main attraction, but there's also a funfair, food stalls and live music on offer.
The eye-popping extravaganza will take place on 5 November - but be sure to arrive early to secure the best view (and grab some hot seasonal food to enjoy during the show). For more information visit glasgowlife.org.uk
