THIS year’s Merchant Square Hogmanay Party is set to be more extravagant than ever before.

Hosted by well-known radio personality Gina McKie and radio DJ Colin McArdle, the Merchant Square Hogmanay Party will feature a Spinal Chord aerial performance, live music from Funk Nation and The Paul McKenna Band, a balloon drop, cannon confetti and much more – all under a covered canopy of stars in the heart of the stylish Merchant City.

Jenni Morrison, of Merchant Square, said: “The Merchant Square Hogmanay Party has grown in popularity each year with revellers seeking to add some sparkle into Hogmanay under a glittering canopy of stars in a safe and warm, celebratory environment.

“This year will see a spectacular choreographed aerial performance from Spinal Chord featuring cocoon-type hammocks featuring LED lights and unicycle performers on the floor, as well as some funk and traditional Scottish music.

“Revellers in search of the best Hogmanay party in Glasgow can come to Merchant Square for the only Hogmanay street party the weather can’t spoil!”

Located on Candleriggs in the city centre, Merchant Square in Merchant City is home to a cosmopolitan selection of bars and restaurants, all set within a covered courtyard – where it never rains.

The Merchant Square Hogmanay Party will continue from 8pm till 1am.
