As a city, Glasgow is spoiled with fantastic events which appeal to a wide variety of people. From its bustling live music scene, busy bars and clubs to its wide range of museums and art galleries there really is something for everyone. At GSL we are always looking to keep our customers in the loop so we have picked out some of the best upcoming events from our great city to brighten up your February.
– Still Game, The SSE Hydro
The famous Scottish comedy show returns this month for more live shows at Scotland’s largest concert and events venue.
– There are always a wide range of musicians playing in Glasgow throughout the year and February is no different. This month will see artists such as Kings of Leon, The Pet Shop Boys, Busted, The View and LeAnne Rimes grace the stage.
-South Lanarkshire’s COMIC CON will take place this month at Rutherglen Townhall on Saturday the 4th of February. This event is for all of those comic book and sci-fi fans out there. At £1 entry and with kids under 5 entering for free this is a great event for the whole family.
– The Glasgow Film Festival returns to the streets of Scotland’s largest city once more for its 12th consecutive year. With events and premiers throughout February, you will be able to find the full line up here: https://www.list.co.uk/event/239690-glasgow-film-festival
– The Scottish Wedding Show
This is of course more of a niche event but is a must attend for anyone who is thinking of tying the knot any time soon. The event takes place on the 25th and 26th of February at the SECC in Finnieston.
– The Full Monty @ The Kings Theatre.
The 1997 classic comedy smash The Full Monty has been given the stage treatment and will be touring the country throughout 2017 and has already played well received shows in Edinburgh, Northampton, Belfast, Canterbury, and Cambridge to name a few. The show will run at the Kings Theatre between the 27th of February until the 4th of March; Perhaps a good Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone in your life.
In the city of Glasgow we are spoiled for choice for many famous museums and art galleries which are open all year round and many also have free entry (although a small donation is usually courteous). We would particularly recommend the “Object in Force” exhibit which starts on the 7th of February and will run each week at Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The event sees one of the museum curators taking a group around the museum to look at exhibits in more detail under an expert eye.
With such a wide array of activities to choose from it is definitely hard to go bored in Glasgow.
