As we fast approach that time of year when everyone has a bit too much to eat and drink, we wanted to do something to help those whose lives are far from merry. Given that we welcome hundreds to our festival every year we wanted to do something charitable while we’ve got you all together to celebrate whisky.

This year, in association with Drumchapel Foodbank, we will be having a raffle with a difference. You can’t buy a ticket: to get one you must swap one item on the list below for it. You can get as many tickets as you like for as many of these items that you bring along with you to the festival.

Hampden Park at Glasgows Whisky Festival 2016

“What can I win?”, we hear you cry. Well, for each session we will be giving away 5 pairs of tickets for next year’s festival. That’s 10 pairs of tickets for next year to be won over the two sessions!

Once we have had a chance to recover after the festival, we will do the draw, live on Facebook from Bon Accord, and track down those lucky winners.

Pop along to your local supermarket or grocers and get involved and you might be coming along next year with a friend for free!

Required items:

– Tinned Meals (minced beef, curry, stew, mac n cheese etc)

– Tinned Veg (carrots, peas, sweetcorn etc)

– Boxed Cereal

– Jars of Sauce (pasta sauce, sweet n sour etc)

– Shampoo/Conditioner/Shower Gel

– Boxes of Soap Powder

– Tea Bags

– Jars of Baby Food

– Feminine Hygiene Products

– Toilet Roll

– Nappies (specifically size 5/6/7)

There will be two raffles. One for each session. The first raffle will be 11am-1pm and the second will be 4pm-6pm. We will collect items from you while you are queuing at the steps of the main entrance.

Thank you in advance!


There is no cash alternative.

Glasgow’s Whisky Festival’s decision is final.
