The West End Festival (WEF) is Glasgow’s largest cultural event and every June takes over the imaginations of participants and visitors in the west end of Glasgow. In 2014 it celebrates its 19th year.
Over 100 Glasgow-based organisations, arts groups and local and international artists deliver a mixture of activities and projects, overseen by a small festival team. The WEF brings all of these activities together in the festival programme and includes events, exhibitions, performances, talks, tours, workshops and screenings, and many are free of charge to allow accessibility. The WEF’s ethos is to include participants and venues that can complement the already diverse programme.
More than 1 million visitors have attended the event since it started and last year the festival encompassed over 400 events in 80 venues across the west end. The festival is supported with funding from Creative Scotland. Glasgow City Council also helps fund the festival.
