We have a number of annual regular events, detailed below.

Gala Day.

Gala Days are a tradition here in Scotland and specifically across the Central Belt.

They are a remnant of the village’s mining roots when traditionally all mining communities held a similar celebration including a pageant and funfair during the Summer. Douglas holds its event on the fourth Saturday in June each year. A Queen, Champion and Gala Court are selected from the local Primary School and groups of locals dress up and enter a pageant or decorated float.

It’s a great day of celebration in the village which is preceded by a week-long diary of fun events for all the family. The day culminates with the crowning of the Queen and a funfair in the park.
