A free night out: fireworks displays around Glasgow and Clyde


Sometimes it feels like every occasion in the year is just a chance to make money, but at least so far, I’ve not seen any “Happy Fireworks Day” cards in the shop. It’s one of my favourite days of the year, because it still has a feeling of being communal and bringing people together. While you can choose to go out and spend a fortune on fireworks if you want to, it can still be a free night out.

Austerity and the cuts might have led to shorter displays, but there are still great events around Glasgow and Clyde. And don’t worry if you feel too anxious to go along to a big public display, find yourself a quiet spot on a hill, or even at your window and soak it all up. Here’s the best of what’s happening.
