Christmas Tree Spectacular

Music, lights and fireworks join together to produce a spectacular celebration of the lighting of the mammoth Glenisle Christmas tree. The light and music show is designed and conceived by the Glenisle Hotel. The firework show is designed and executed by Midnight Storm of Glasgow.

Santa will be here

Santa will fly in from the North Pole especially to meet all the children and find out what they want for Christmas. He always makes a spectacular entrance at the end of a fabulous parade so don't be late!
Mrs Claus and the Snowman

This year Mrs Claus will be coming, too. She just love to entertain the children with stories, songs and activities. And, her friend the snowman will be coming along as well.

Fun, Games and lots more...

There will be all sorts of activites for the whole family. Watch this space for developments.
After-fireworks Party

After the fireworks we will be throwing a big, family-friendly bash in the Glenisle marquee. The Glenisle BBQ will be serving food, there will be soft drinks as well as a licenced bar and the The Vests will be playing live. It's the perfect, fun way to end the day.

Featuring live music from The Vests

Imagine a mix of Roxy Music, Rolling Stones, Van Morrison and Bowie mixed in with Cameo and Counting Crows and you’re on your way to rocking out with ... The Vests !!

The Vests are regulars on the live scene -- in Glassford anyway at the local pub -- have played as part of the Race For Life relay event in East Kilbride and are now appearing overseas.
