For Glasgow’s very first Christmas scare attraction, The Arches is opening its basement – a maze of hidden passages, dead ends and dark, dark corners – and exposing YOU to the darkness lurking beneath the festivities. From twisted elves, Santa’s grotesque grotto and an evil Mrs Claws, Ghosts of Christmas will take you on a journey through all your favourite Christmas scenes, with a truly horrible twist. Prepare to witness your blackest Christmas yet: and remember, with only one way out, we can’t guarantee you’ll make it to the end...
Expect heart-pounding experiences, racing adrenaline, sinister secrets and sheer, unadulterated terror as you’re left to find out what’s make believe and what’s real..
Belle & Sebastian
19th – 21st December @ the Barrowlands
Some of Glasgow’s favourite sons play three dates in one of the city’s oldest concert halls. Tickets are thin on the ground, so shnap them up quickly if you’re keen to see the legendary duo play their home town.
