Feeling Festive In Glasgow
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. Christmas! Glasgow doesn’t slow down for the holidays and with our fantastic deals live, now is the time to book yourself a cheeky break away to enjoy all the city has to offer this festive season. To give you a little inspiration, we’ve investigated the events calendar and come up with our top picks this December.
Girl’s Day Out Show
For all your pre-party pampering, don’t miss the Girl’s Day Out Show at the SECC in Glasgow’s West End December 1st – 3rd. The day promises to be packed full of fun with exhibitors coming from all over the UK to provide treatments and sell their products at exclusive, show-only discount prices. The early bird gets the worm with this one as advance ticket booking will save you 20% and help you get the party started with two free cocktails!
Glasgow Loves Christmas
Ice skating, traditional Hogmanay party, plus the famous Style Mile featuring high street and designer stores including flagship Gap and H&M – you’ll find it all and more at Glasgow Loves Christmas, the city’s very own celebration of all things festive. Expect a sparkling light display, European Christmas market in George Square (gluhwein, anyone?) and shopping till you drop. Things kick off in late November and run until early January so you’ve plenty of time to fit in a trip.
Get ready… get set…. GO! The annual Santa Dash sees thousands of men, women and children take to the streets to complete this fun run which begins and ends in George Square. All participants don their best Santa outfit complete with belts, beards and boots whilst completing the course for a number of charitable causes – the perfect way to celebrate Christmas. Dates are TBC but a day in December is a dead cert so remember to check our deals page to book the perfect cosy room to recover to once you’re done.
Irn Bru Carnival
One for the little and not-so-little kids! The Irn Bru Carnival – operated by M&D’s theme park – is a Glasgow institution. This indoor fair-ground comes to the SECC from December 21st – January 14th and is the perfect day out for thrill-seekers. With adrenaline-rush inducing speeds, dizzy heights and thumping music to finish off the experience, you won’t be short of opportunities to test your nerve at this super popular event.
With plenty going on in the city during December and our weekend deals live, now is the time to book a quick getaway ahead of Christmas, giving you the perfect timeout before the madness of the festive season descends!
