Gala Day 2018Our annual Gala Day is returning on Saturday 18 August!

The event at Firhill Sports Complex will provide an array of entertainment, activities and stalls in what promises to be a fun day out for all the family.

Live music in the form of bagpipers and singers on our main stage will keep visitors entertained throughout the day. There will be prize bingo games and tug o war for you to have a go at if you’re feeling strong.  

There’s funfair rides, a bouncy castle, face painting, space hoppers and much more to keep the kids amused. You can also try and ‘beat the goalie’ in one of several football challenges throughout the event.

You can get a tarot card reading, take part in our tombola or put your chef’s hat on with biscuit making in just some of the many stalls that will on display at the event.

If you’re in need of some refreshment, you can try some of the delicious food on offer; from African, Chinese and Italian cuisine and healthy smoothies to the more traditional hot rolls, burgers and hot dogs.

Speaking ahead of the event, Queens Cross Chair Marilyn Clewes said:

“The Gala Day is one of the most important days in our calendar as it offers an opportunity to our residents to come together and celebrate what the local area has to offer.

“QCHA prides itself on the four communities it represents; Dundasvale, Hamiltonhill, Queens Cross and Woodside, and is excited about hosting a day which gives something back to our tenants.

“I can’t wait for to see all the activities and entertainment on offer.”
