Next up...


Name: Susie McGuinness

Role: Volunteer - helping with admin and live social media

Time working with WEF: About a month!

  1. What is your earliest memory of the West End Festival 

I remember being hoisted up on my dad’s shoulders to watch some belly dancers in the park when I was about five, I’d never seen anything like it!


  1. Why do you think the West End Festival is so important to Glasgow?

I think it’s brilliant to have a festival programme that’s a mix of traditional theatre, music and arts events, but also with so many free outdoor events that people can just stumble across and get involved with!


  1. What are your top tips for choosing events to attend?

Try and get your hands on a programme! They’re dotted around the west end and it’s a super quick way to get an overview of what’s happening. The website is also great for filtering by event type which makes it super easy to find something you fancy.


  1. What is the ONE event you’re looking forward to this year?

I’m buzzing for the outdoor ceilidh in Vinicombe Street- it’s practically on my doorstep and if last year’s ceilidhs are anything to go by; it’s bound to be a laugh.


  1. Describe WEF in one sentence

Vibrant events in a colourful community.
