Southside Fiesta

About Southside Fiesta

Southside Fringe are delighted to be working in collaboration with Shawlands Business Improvement District and Baldy Bane Theatre Company to deliver this community showcase celebrating the wealth of diversity in the Southside of Glasgow.

To kick off the Southside Fiesta on the 11th of May a procession will take over Shawlands with groups, schools, businesses and acts all being invited to take part and demonstrate their diversity by creating a riot of colour on the Southside streets.

The procession will arrive in the newly finished square outside Langside Halls, kicking off an afternoon of quality live entertainment from local schools and content drawn from the 2019 Southside Fringe Festival programme.

Wonderfully, Alan Reid, writer of the well known and well loved Glasgow song ‘The Dear Green Place’, will be working with the school pupils and performing the song with them on the day. Following content from the schools, Rapido Mariachi will get everyone well and truly in the Fiesta mood. With Tom McGuire and the Brassholes headlining, they’ll share the stage with wonderful acts from the festival programme like Tom Harlow and the Skinflints. Enjoy walk about fun from the Creative Martyrs and the Fringe Enforcers and there will be plenty for all the family to do with crafts from Print Clan and kids performers such as Jaggy Nettles. All will be complemented by stalls populated by Shawlands businesses.

You can find out more via the Facebook event page!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Southside Fiesta are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
