The 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow ends with the closing ceremony on Sunday, 3 August at Hampden Park.

Where to Watch Live

The closing ceremony starts at 9pm and is live on BBC One, BBC One HD, the BBC Sport website and BBC Radio Five Live.


Less than 24 hours after the end of the track and field programme, Hampden Park will play host to the closing ceremony of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games in a show "not to be missed" according to the organisers.

Performing at the event, which is due to start at 21:00 BST in Glasgow, include Kylie Minogue as well as a host of critically acclaimed Scottish artists including Lulu, Deacon Blue and Dougie MacLean.

Glasgow 2014 chief executive David Grevemberg said: "We are delighted to reveal the glittering line-up of Scottish and international talent joining us in Hampden Park for the closing ceremony.

"There is so much for so many people to celebrate. Our Commonwealth athletes have been inspirational and the people of Glasgow and Scotland will give them and all our visitors a great send-off. Never has a city or its people been prouder or more welcoming."

The ceremony is set to recap some of the highlights from the past eleven days of competition as well as include a reference to the next Games in 2018, due to be held on Australia's Gold Coast.

As well as the 40,000 people watching inside Hampden Park, the ceremony is expected to include appearances from council vehicles, a number of the Clydesider volunteers and several pipe bands to give the evening a Scottish feel. An estimated one billion people are expected to tune in world-wide.

This follows a well-received, humorous opening ceremony, which featured performances from Rob Stewart and Susan Boyle as well as an live Unicef appeal.
