The Delhi Flag Handover Ceremony (DFHC) was a project delivered by Glasgow Life on behalf of the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee. The Handover Ceremony took place towards the end of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and reflects the passing of responsibility for the Games from one host to the next (i.e. Glasgow). This report reflects on Glasgow’s approach to the DFHC, specifically its recruitment of a Mass Cast of 348 volunteers to participate in an 8-minute performance in Delhi. Glasgow sought to secure participation from across Scotland drawing on both semi-professional and amateur performers.
