Christmas holidays are over, welcome back to Your Glasgow Home! Check out some of the events happening in Glasgow this month.
To help you beat the January blues our four student bodies are bringing Refreshers' Week, a mini version of the renowned Fresher’s week. Check out the line-up!
Love a frantic violin and can’t resist dancing to a bagpipe? Check out Celtic Connections! My non-talented chosen highlights include Anxo Lorenzo trio and Xabier Diaz e Adufeiras do Salitre for some bagpipe cheer and traditional singing, La Banda Europa with musicians from all around the continent and A Banda das Crechas, based on that basement where I spent part of my beloved youth. Bands from other parts of the Atlantic are coming too, check out the full programme.
Drum roll please…It’s all about drums here. For more drums, bagpipes and everything else with a ceremonial and military twist head to The Glasgow Tattoo. A regular at Edinburgh Festival, the show is now coming to our city.
The Scots like to mark the anniversary of their national bard’s birth, Robert Burns, with some haggis, whisky…and perhaps poetry. You can cook your flatmates a tasty Haggis Lasagne or head to one of the Burns Supper celebrations happening around and ceilidh on!
Can’t wait to see what these guys have been up to? Whatever it is, you need to see it. While you wait, don’t forget you can visit some of the Trainspotting locations nearby your hall. The University of Glasgow is featured on this one, look for it!
And to finish off the month, let’s go for some comedy. The comedian Nish Kumar will be in Glasgow with his new show ‘Nish Kumar: Actions Speak Louder Than Words Unless You Shout The Words Real Loud’. If Stewart Lee says is good, I’m going.
