Culture 2014

Logo for cultural programme for Glasgow 2014

The Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme will showcase the best of Scottish culture alongside creative work from across the Commonwealth and be a nationwide celebration of the Games, reaching its peak as Glasgow bursts into life at Games time. The programme will feature theatre, dance, music, visual arts, comedy and multi-media; intimate shows and outdoor spectaculars; work in theatres, community centres, on bicycles, by rivers, in botanic gardens, art galleries, cinemas, public spaces and much more.

The programme has two complementary strands: Culture 2014, a nationwide cultural countdown to the Games which will run until 31 August , and Festival 2014, a massive Games-time celebration of culture in Glasgow. Both strands of the Programme feature activities which have opportunities for children and young people, as audience, participants and performers.

You can find information on all projects (and search listings where dates are confirmed) on the Glasgow 2014 website.
