Nobody throws a party quite like Glasgow, and they are set to build on that reputation further as they kick off the games in style on Wednesday 23rd July. The event will take place on Glasgow Green, and help support thousands of children in need in association with UNICEF.
This once-in-a-lifetime occasion will merge together a blistering array of fireworks and the finest Scottish musical talent, performing live on stage. Performers include Belle and Sebastian, Lulu, Eddi Reader, Rab Noakes, Emma Pollock, James Grant, Sarah Hayes, RM Hubbert and Roddy Hart and the Lonesome Fire, who are all honoured to be representing their country’s invitation to the world to join the party.
Her Majesty the Queen will also be in attendance, reading out the message contained within the baton that has travelled across the Commonwealth, thus marking the official start to the games. 4,500 sports men and women from 71 nations will compete in the event, and up to 1 billion people will be watching worldwide.
Those that cannot make it to Glasgow Green can enjoy the proceedings from the comfort of their local Vue Cinema, as we screen both Opening and Closing Ceremonies, exclusively in Scotland.
