September is a month when we all tend to fall back into own respective routines, after the glow of summer vibes start to fade into the background. The school run and daily commute injects us with the feeling of facing the long autumn and winter evenings ahead, and the weeks on the calendar through to Christmas seem so very long.

Then, we find ourselves in October and as the leaves fall, and colours change, we see the joy of that fantastic festival ‘Halloween’ and all the expectations that go with it etched into the faces of kids, students, and adults everywhere. Glasgow begins to gear up and prepare for what is another amazing number of festivals to delight, entertain and break the dullness of the autumn months.

2022 offers so much for people of all ages to do over the Halloween and half term dates. We’ve chosen some of the most popular events happening in Glasgow to give you just a few reasons to come and stay with us at the Ambassador Hotel this month.
