GlescaPal Hoose Parties swally's
People, from every corner of the globe, talking to each other, finding long lost pals and making new pals..aye GlescaPals.

GlescaPals started off Local and now has gone Global

Hoose Parties
Scotland Canada Australia England Wales



 I designed the GlescaPals website in 2002 and as the website grew and evolved, the guestbook and messageboards
 created 'friendships' and get-the-githers were inevitable. In 2005 I organised the first official swally.

Hullo's it gon!
GlescaPals hoose party  swally
The aim of my GlescaPals get-togethers has always been tae recreate the auld hoose parties wi used tae hiv in Glesca, a mixture of good patter, friendship and a sing-song
To that end we have been successful   just ask anyone whose been tae wan!


Scotia bar  GlescaPals 1st official swally - Jan.2005     swally II - July 2005
Such was the success of the first get-the-gither that I organised another for July 2005,
GlescaPals Swally II. The Scotia Bar was superb but it became obvious that we had to look
for a new venue - one that had a private lounge we could use.
Morrison's Bar
around the corner in Clyde Street was suggested and agreed on.

Jan 08


Owner John and his staff made us very welcome each year in his lounge and laid on sandwiches and sausage rolls.
Number wise the lounge can comfortably cater for 40+ however in 2009 I had over 70 names and another venue was required.
I also decided from 2008 to have only one official get-the-gither every September

GlescaPals at the People's Palace
Not everyone can make the annual September get-the-gither and to that end various wee meetings are
arranged via the GP messageboard where Pals meet up. One I suggested which has turned out
to be very popular is a lunchtime meet at the People's Palace.....
