FAMILIES are being invited along to a free summer festival this weekend.

XSite Braehead is set to hold the event on Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15 between 12pm and 6pm each day.

The festival, which is called XSite Fest, will include a ball pit, face painting, balloon modelling, live music from a selection of Glasgow’s best busking talent, and arts and crafts.

On top of that, guests with a competitive streak can also jump into the ball pit to try their luck at finding a golden ball to be in with a chance of winning exclusive retailer vouchers.

Bruce Harley, XSite Centre Manager, said: “We are so excited to host the first XSite Fest, a perfect festival for all ages.

"With lots of activities for the kids and a chance of winning some great prizes from our fantastic attractions and retailers, this isn’t one to be missed.

"We can’t wait to welcome everyone to XSite Braehead for an XSiting day out and we hope you enjoy the many family entertainment attractions and delicious restaurants while you’re here!”
