What is Legacy Week?

Monday 9 – Sunday 15 March 2015 is Legacy Week, an opportunity for people, communities and organisations across Scotland to highlight the legacy of the Commonwealth Games, shining a spotlight on how programmes, projects and investment are improving the lives of people across Scotland and in Glasgow.

Legacy Week is supported by the Scottish Government and partners across Scotland delivering the legacy of the Games. It’s the first Legacy Week since the Games took place last summer.

It’s an opportunity to find out about projects connected to the Games and encourage people to get involved and make the most of the facilities and opportunities available.
