Last year at Glasgow’s Whisky Festival we decided to hold a food bank raffle to collect goods for Drumchapel Food Bank in Glasgow. This food bank provides a lifeline to many of the poorest families in the city and is something we really wanted to help with.
The experiment paid off and we filled two vans with food and toiletries, thanks to your generosity! It was so successful we are doing it again this year. All you have to do is bring along as many items on the list below as you wish and we’ll exchange them each for a raffle ticket. The more you bring the more chance you have of winning tickets for next year. It’s that simple!
Take the list below with you when you do your food shop this week and help us to help those less fortunate than ourselves in Glasgow.
We’ll be drawing the winners live on Facebook next week from Bon Accord so keep your eyes peeled for news of when that will take place and good luck!
It’s just under a month to go and the remaining few tickets for Session 2 are about to sell out at Tickets Scotland.
If you haven’t booked yours yet then now is the time to avoid any disappointment. You know you’ll regret it if you don’t!
More exhibitors have been announced and are listed on our Exhibitors page.
Glenfiddich, Murray McDavid and James Eadie have all been added recently with many more still to be announced over the coming weeks. As usual, you’ll be the first to find out if you follow our Social Media (see the wee icons at the top right above the right menu).
We’re working away behind the scenes to bring you the biggest and best festival yet, and can confirm we have over 65 stands booked with more to follow! This will be a new record for us again as we continue to grow every year to bring you as much choice from around the globe as we possibly can, all under one roof in Scotland’s National Stadium, Hampden Park.
Our announcements are coming thick and fast on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels and you can see the current list of those we have revealed on the Exhibitors page right now.
Recent posts include The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, Glengoyne and Speyburn.
We also have world whiskies available to sample on the day such as Mackmyra from Sweden and Paul John from India.
There are just a few tickets left for Session 2 which you can purchase from Tickets Scotland or Bon Accord (in person only) in Glasgow.
See the Tickets page for more info.
Who are you hoping to see there on Saturday 10th of November? Keep your eyes peeled and you just might see them announced very soon!
We’re delighted to kick off our exhibitor announcements for this year with Indie Brands who’ll once again have their flagship Isle of Arran whisky and Brockman’s Gin with them amongst other tasty spirits.
Remember tickets go on sale on Saturday 31st of March! More exhibitor announcements coming soon…
Save the date! We’re back at Hampden Park on Saturday 10th of November 2018 with another two sessions!
Tickets will be on sale on Saturday 31st of March 2018 from 11am.
There are two sessions: 12pm-4pm and 5pm-9pm. Keep an eye on this website and our Social Media for more details in the New Year!
Do you have any of these tickets? If so you are coming to Glasgow’s Whisky Festival 2018 with a partner or pal for nothing!
Check your purses, wallets and pockets. Most have now been claimed via Facebook.
You can watch the draw, which took place on Monday live from Bon Accord, on our Facebook page.
If you are clutching one of the winning tickets please drop us an email or message and we’ll make sure you’re joining us next year for another cracking gathering of whiskies.
Thanks again to everyone who took part in our foodbank raffle for Drumchapel Foodbank and we hope to do the same again next year!
First of all, we hope you all enjoyed our festival on Saturday. Our first double-header went down a storm with exhibitors and guests alike. Hopefully you will join us for the same again next year!
Today at 3pm we will draw the winning tickets for our foodbank raffle which was in aid of Drumchapel Foodbank. We are absolutely amazed by the response. Pictured above are just some of the donations from the first session alone!
Join us on Facebook live from Bon Accord in Glasgow, our spiritual home, for the draw at 3pm and have those tickets ready! Don’t worry if you can’t watch as we will post the winners across all our Social Media, here on our website and via our mailing list.
Thank you again from us all and good luck today!
That’s it, folks. We’re full up for this year! All the tickets for our first double-header at Hampden Park have been snapped up, so thank you to everyone who bought one and we can’t wait to open the doors to you on Saturday where over 60 stands will await you and your Glencairn glass.
Remember to bring your foodbank items from the list if you want to take part in the raffle for 2018 tickets and please remember that nobody is allowed to attend both sessions on the day. Do pace yourselves, drink plenty of water and drink responsibly!
Keep an eye on our Social Media pages or the Exhibitor page for announcements of who will be showing off their hard work on the stands and enjoy.
See you on the 11th!
There are no more tickets for Session 1 left, but you can still pick up tickets for Session 2 if you are quick!
Your last chance to attend the festival is at the end of this link. Click it quickly or you miss might out. You know how miserable you will be when you see all your pals posting photos on Social Media from it. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
We’re giving away 10 pairs of tickets for Glasgow’s Whisky Festival 2018 in a raffle with a difference!
Bring an item on our foodbank list, which will be collected by Drumchapel Foodbank, to the festival with you and get a raffle ticket in exchange for it. It’s that simple. Help someone less fortunate and maybe win two tickets for next year.
