Christmas Market in Glasgow
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to the Christmas markets in St Enoch Square Glasgow where you’re always in for a treat. Traders from across the globe welcome guests from across the country and the world with festive treats like Churros, Crepes, Yorkshire Pudding Wraps, Chestnuts, Luxury Hot Chocolate & Artisan Coffee and so much more. The festive bar is the place to be if you love a festive alcoholic drink that will warm you from the inside out.
You’ll also have your pick of the best local and independent traders selling some gorgeous gift ideas at the Christmas markets. You’ll find a wide selection of toys, textiles, skincare, candles, gift sets, candles and so much more with unique items you’d never find on the high street.
The city lights up like a giant Christmas tree around Christmas time and this year we have the extra special Glasgow Illuminated to look forward to too. City Chambers, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Buchanan Galleries and The Buck’s Head Building (at St Enoch Centre)and more are encased in festive lights and images from 4pm from 1 December until 2 January. It’s a great photo opportunity and shows Glasgow in its best possible light.
Panto in Glasgow
Did you know that panto has been in the UK since the 14th Century? Every year Pantos still play a big part in family tradition with young and old enjoying the music and madness of the show. This year we are spoiled for choice with everything from community theatre to large scale, professional performances. This year visit the Tron Theatre where you’ll meet Dorothy Blawna-Gale, her trusty dog Tronto and their friends the scarecrow without a brain, the tin (wo)man without a heart and the cowardly lion (whose favourite place to hide is the fridge)as they adventure through Oz! Alternatively you could enjoy a true rags to riches story with Cinderella in King’s Theatre Glasgow where you’ll enjoy laugh-out-loud comedy, stunning scenery, beautiful costumes and plenty of ‘He’s Behind You!’.

We take New Year’s very seriously in Scotland –it even has its own unique name. Visit Glasgow this Hogmanay for a start to the year you won’t forget. Every year, the fireworks take pride of place in the hearts and eyes of locals and visitors where they can ring in the new year with a bang and a flash. Restaurants, pubs and bars have their own special celebrations with a variety of high class or casual parties catering to all tastes and budgets. Glasgow pubs and people guarantee a warm welcome and more new friends than you ever knew you had all signing Old Lang Syne as the bell strikes 12 on a New Year’s you’ll never forget.
