Leaving On A Jet Plane

I have a friend who works in a well-known Glasgow travel agent who tells me that they have been inundated with bookings from local people (mainly women) - on the basis they will pay the balance of their holidays in July!

So it's good to see that the local economy is getting a big boost from Glasgow's long fight for equal pay.


Glasgow Grannies and Equal Pay (02/06/19)

One of the staff at the Van Winkle Bar and Grill (see post below) told me a great story on Thursday - her Granny is one of the many Glasgow Claimants and is so delighted with her settlement offer that she's taking the whole family off to Las Vegas.


PayFest 2019 - Glasgow's Big Equal Pay Party

I said in a previous post that I would arrange for the Host and DJ for PayFest 2019, Paul Harper, to meet some of the Claimants - ahead of Glasgow's big equal pay party on Saturday 6 July 2019. 

So this meeting went ahead yesterday in Van Winkle, a Bar and Grill which is right across the road from The Barrowlands.

Fiona Winchester from Heart Radio was there and interviewed Betty, Frances, Rosie and Yvonne about the PayFest Party and the long fight for equal pay with Glasgow City Council.

The sale of PayFest tickets has taken a back seat while all the settlement letters have been going out, but will start up again in earnest over the next day few days.

Our friends at Van Winkle have kindly offered to host a pre-party gathering on the evening of PayFest and not only is Van Winkle very close to The Barrowlands - the Bar also has a Beer Garden so let's hope its a dry and sunny evening.

More details to follow - so watch this space.


PayFest 2019 - Host and DJ! 

Some more exciting news about the line up for PayFest 2019!

Our host and DJ on Saturday 6th July 2019 will be radio presenter Paul Harper, as heard on Scotland's biggest radio stations for the last 20 years, including Beat 106, Real Radio and Heart FM. 

Paul was Robbie Williams tour DJ and played in the George Square bells with Paolo Nutini and Deacon Blue. 

No doubt Paul will be aiming to pack out the Barrowland   dance floor with some of the biggest party anthems of all time in what promises to be a night to remember! 

So be there or be square!
