Glasgow Photo Library
- Buchanan Bus Station Meeting Point
Glasgow is using the somewhat tenuous link between the fact that the relics of St Valentine are said to be in the Blessed John Duns Scotus Church in the city's Gorbals area, to launch a Festival of Love around 14 February. Stores are being asked to feature celebrity art work and a "love trail" which passes the "Wincher's Stance" (this statue at Buchanan Street Bus Station featuring a kissing couple). The "Love Bus" takes visitors on a 90-minute tour around romantic sites in the city as part of the Festival.
There is also a minor film festival featuring such romantic movies as Casablanca and Brief Encounter. The organisers of the festival say that they hope it will be an annual event which Glaswegians and visitors will "take to their hearts".
