What's On in Glasgow? - February

By sdopico 27 Jan 2017

And here it comes, the shortest month of the year. Still, plenty of time for a packed list of events happening around the city. Check these out!

Made in India | 8-11Feb | Tron Theatre

The Tron Theatre is always a good bet for independent and cutting-edge plays. This month you can see Made in India, a play about three women who meet in a surrogacy clinic. It explores issues of motherhood and human relationships in a global world. Student tickets are available from £9.

Rock Against Racism|11Feb|Street Level Photoworks

Check out this photography exhibition with the work of Syd Shelton. The photographs explore the story of Rock Against Racism, a campaign set up in Britain in the late 1970’s in response to an increased racial and political conflict. Performers such as The Clash and Elvis Costello are portrayed, as well as various demonstrations and events which reflect the social and political reality of the time. Entry is free.

Glasgow Film Festival | 15-26 Feb

Film-buffs, the time to indulge yourself in the best cinema is here! The CineMasters strand on this year’s festival includes works from Agnes Varda, Werner Herzog, Aki Kaurismäki and Terence Malik. For a more challenging experience, check out the film tribute to the avant-garde cinema pioneer Jonas Mekas; the film ‘contains very few images and repeatedly fades to black’, I’m loving it already. I’d also like to experience David Lynch’s Factory Photographs and La Jetée sonic response, but I’m still getting over my last time at the Glue Factory… Well, are you counting the days for the return of Twin Peaks? Go and see David Lynch: The Art of Life and don’t try to understand a thing. Lastly, don’t miss Oliver Laxe’s Mimosas in the Pioneers strand, he’s a master in the making! You can check the full programme and buy tickets online. Get the GFT 15-25 card for £5.50 tickets all year round.

The Braw Beard & Moustache Championships|18 Feb  

Either taking part actively or passively, I can’t think of a better way to spend your Saturday, can you? This is a first for Scotland. How come we waited so long? Competition categories include best partial beard, best ginger beard and best fake beard. So bring it on! ‘From wool to head hair to playing cards, there is no limit’. Do let us know if you go and win a prize, we need to see that!

Alphonse Mucha:In Quest of Beauty|19 Feb|Kelvingrove

Last chance to catch Mucha’s work at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Love Art Noveau? See the Czech artist’s work and then visit the Mackintosh Gallery. That’s some cool design overload for the day. Tickets are £3 for students.

I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having an old friend for dinner. Bye!
