MUSIC from around the globe will be used to send out a healthy message as part of a summer festival.

Big Big Sing is a UK-wide celebration of singing and it will take place at Glasgow Green on Sunday, July 27.

On the same day the Glasgow 2014 Marathon starts and finishes at Glasgow Green, Big Big Sing will be hoping to rouse the whole Live Zone with a mass of singing activities.

At locations across the Green, there will be a Pied Piper entertaining children with songs and rhymes; a Musicals Marathon where you can join in singing favourite hits from the musicals; Come and Try sessions teaching singing in styles including Gaelic mouth music, Indian singing and beatboxing; a tea song-and-dance for those who prefer a more sedate tempo; and Song Stages with performances by choirs from across the country.

The Big Big Sing takes place on July 27 from 8am to 9pm, as part of Festival 2014.
