Glasgow Friends of MayDay (GFoMD) have today announced changes for this year’s celebration of the International Workers’ Festival in Glasgow. While the annual event at Oran Mor will take place again on the Monday holiday (May 2), its focus will change from a cabaret evening, to a night of drama and song.
This year’s Mayday marches will take place on different days around Scotland, with the largest on Sunday May 1 in Glasgow – this year it will rally in the Old Fruitmarket. Others will be on Sat April 30 (Aberdeen, Dundee and Fife) and Sat May 7 (Edinburgh and Irvine).
