IT is one of the most loved events in the city calendar... but Glasgow Life bosses cannot yet say whether the George Square Christmas lights switch on will go ahead.

This afternoon is has been revealed that Glasgow City Chambers will be lit up again this year.

And the lighting programme will be expanded to include spectacular displays on the fronts of three more well known buildings.

Glasgow Life was asked if the annual Christmas lights switch on event is scheduled to take place this year.

But a spokesman said no decision has yet been taken.

Lord Provost of Glasgow Philip Braat said: “Christmas is the time of year we look to spend more time with friends and family and this year we are offering even more opportunities to come and celebrate in Glasgow. 

"Glasgow offers something for everyone as we celebrate Christmas and I hope people will get together safely and support the local businesses, hospitality and entertainment venues that make the city a special destination all year round."

The light shows are part of the Love Glasgow This Christmas campaign and will see lights projected on to Buchanan Galleries and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Sauchiehall Street and at the Buck’s Head Building at the St Enoch Centre on Argyle Street.

The news comes as the first Christmas lights were spotted going up in George Square.

A festive visitor campaign just launched will encourage people to visit the city centre to make the most of the culture, nightlife, entertainment and retail Glasgow has to offer.

Organisers said the aim of the campaign is to support local firms during the crucial festive period.

The building lighting, which starts at all three buildings on December 1 and runs until Jan 2 2022, was a hugely popular element of Glasgow Loves Christmas in 2020.

George Square and the City Centre will again be home to the Christmas Tree, festive lights, and the Nativity. 

Plans for Christmas Markets will be confirmed soon.
