Family fun on Byres Road

On Saturday the 5th December, Byres Road and Lanes BID is proud to be part of two exciting events: The Snoopy Kennel Tour and Small Business Saturday.

As the only Scottish stop on a whirlwind tour of six UK cities, Byres Road will be hosting a Snoopy Kennel exhibition in order to celebrate the release of Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie. Twentieth Century Fox has teamed up with ITV’s Text Santa and has asked celebrities such as Andy Murray and Joanna Lumley to design their own Snoopy kennel, all of which can be seen as part of the touring exhibition. Judging by the premiere on London’s Regent Street, this is one event that the whole family is bound to enjoy!

From 9 to 1 pm this Saturday, you will be able to get a close look at the Snoopy kennels on the Ashton Road Car Park on Byres Road, alongside fun-filled activities such as a meet-and-greet with Snoopy himself. Should you take a particular liking to any of the kennels, you can bid on them through the Rosebery Auction House, with 100% of all proceeds going to ITV Text Santa and the three associated charities: Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish and Save the Children.

As if Snoopy wasn’t enough of a reason to visit Byres Road this weekend, Byres Road & Lanes BID has also teamed up with local businesses to celebrate Small Business Saturday. Look out for our helpers, who can be found on Byres Road distributing brochures with great offers in many of our shops, bars and restaurants. It’ll be a great opportunity to get your Christmas shopping done (or started…), or treat your family to a nice meal after visiting the Snoopy exhibition.
