About this Event

VE 75 People's Parade

Glasgow Green - George Square

Join the Military Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and the Pipes and Drums of all Regiments and Battalions stationed in Scotland in a march from Glasgow Green to George Square to mark VE75 as part of the nationwide celebration.

'People make Glasgow' so we are inviting a number of youth groups, societies and associations to join in a People's Parade. Some will want to march in formation, while others will want to be more informal. We will also commemorate the sacrifices made by the whole community during the Second World War and not just those in uniform. Each contingent will be led by a band; either a Pipes and Drums or a Military Band.

Groups are welcome to bring their own band, instruments and banners.

The planned programme for the People's Parade:

Assemble from midday at Glasgow Green where there will be activities for all ages including flying demonstrations from the Army's latest helicopter fleet.

At 1:45pm there will be a Spectacular Gun Salute firing the start of the Parade.

The parade will finish at George Square around 3pm where there will be a VE Celebration event followed by a concert and party until 5pm.
