Stall bookings are now open.

Cumbernauld Gala Day is an annual event organised by Cumbernauld Community Forum in conjunction with several other local organisations.

This year’s event will be aimed at raising awareness and funds for the British Transplant Games (BTG), with monies raised from the day going to support the BTG.

Cumbernauld Gala Day will this year take place on Saturday 17th June at Cumbernauld New Town Hall, with a whole day’s schedule of acts, entertainment and festivities currently being finalised for what we hope will be the biggest Gala Day in Cumbernauld yet.

Cumbernauld Gala Day Draws Closer

Plans for one of Cumbernauld’s largest annual community events are progressing well as we move closer to the date of this year’s Cumbernauld Gala Day. The event takes place this year on Saturday 27th June at Cumbernauld New Town Hall and, as usual, the festivities will commence with a grand parade from Fleming House to the event venue on North Carbrain Road.

This year the Gala Queen, Mara O’Connor, and Princesses, Aily McAdam and Anisa Mian, are from St Maurice’s High School, who take their turn in the annual rotation of local schools, and they recently accepted a £1000 donation from Scottish Water Horizons to support the planning and delivery of the Cumbernauld Gala Day event.

Stalls are still available to book, with the booking form available to download here, and all profits from this year’s Cumbernauld Gala Day event will be donated to support the people of Nepal and disaster recovery efforts following the recent earthquakes in the region.

2015 Gala Day Plans Progress

The 2015 Cumbernauld Gala Day will take place on Saturday 27th June at Cumbernauld New Town Hall. This year’s theme is “The community that cares” and all profits will be donated to one or more local charities or community organisations. The Gala Queen and Princesses for 2015 will come from St Maurice’s High School. Stall booking is now available by downloading the Stall Booking Form and submitting via e-mail to galaday@cumbernauldcommunityforum.co.uk or by delivery to the LINK Community Facility. Bookings will not be validated until payment is submitted by cash or cheque to the LINK Community Facility.

2014 Cumbernauld Gala Day Success

Well it’s all over for another year. The fifth Cumbernauld Community Forum Gala Day was an unprecedented sucess and saw the biggest and best Gala Day event ever, held on a sunny Saturday 21st June at Cumbernauld New Town Hall.

Our thanks to everyone who came along and made the day the fantastic community event it could be. Our Cumbernauld Gala Day page has been updated with details from the day as well as a picture gallery from the event.

Our thanks again to all attendees, stall holders, sponsors, and contributing businesses and organisations, and we hope to see you all again at next year’s Cumbernauld Gala Day.

Cumbernauld Gala Day Success

A big thank you to everyone who came along to Saturday’s 2013 Cumbernauld Gala Day. We couldn’t have asked for better weather and our new Gala Queen and Princesses were looking great.

Thanks also to Cumbernauld Community Forum and Cumbernauld Rotary Club for the huge amount of time and effort they put into planning and organising the event over the last several months; and to our event sponsors Sanctuary Cumbernauld, Scottish Water Horizons, North Lanarkshire Council, NHS Lanarkshire, Cumbernauld College, Police Scotland, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, See Me, and again Cumbernauld Rotary Club, without whose support we couldn’t have delivered the event.

We hope you all had a great time. Unfortunately we were let down by the suppliers of the climbing wall who cancelled yesterday morning, and the suppliers of the fairground equipment who broke down while on their way to us but we appreciate that can’t be helped.

We’ll be reviewing the day to establish what went well and what could posisbly be done diffierently to make next year’s Cumbernauld Gala Day event bigger and better. Meanwhile pick up this week’s Cumbernauld News for coverage of the big day. Thanks again!
