The Glasgow 2018 European Championships will take place from 2-12 August 2018. As part of the event, Glasgow will also host a cultural programme entitled Festival 2018, a programme of world-class arts and cultural activity which is fully embedded in the context of Glasgow 2018.

This year the Merchant City Festival will align its dates to form an integral part of Festival 2018. The festival will run over the two weekends of the Championships on Saturday 4 August and Sunday 5 August and then Thursday 9 to Sunday 12 August in venues, streets and spaces within the Merchant City. You can download the Festival Brochure here.

Glasgow’s iconic George Square will be the beating heart of Festival 2018 during the 2018 European Championships creating a carnival atmosphere through a spectacular line up that will delight all ages and put Glasgow and Scotland’s renowned creativity in the spotlight.

There will be information sessions held in the city and we would encourage you to attend to find out more about the Glasgow 2018 European Championships including Festival 2018 and potential impacts in your area.
