What's On - November
You’ve put down your Halloween decorations and Christmas is fast approaching!

Bridget Jones’s Diary - Film with Live Orchestra @ Glasgow Royal Concert Hall - 2nd November
Come and see the movie Bridget Jones’s Diary as never before with a 60-piece orchestra, whilst the film itself will be presented in stunning HD via a huge screen. Taking place in the Royal Concert hall, this is a must for any Bridget Jones fan!
Based on the novel of the same name by Helen Fielding, the film adaptation starring Renée Zellweger as the title character follows the neurotic 32-year-old Londoner Bridget Jones trying to find love within a year and keeping a diary of her encounters. This leads her to a love triangle with her beguiling boss, played by Hugh Grant, and a disagreeable acquaintance played by Colin Firth.
GlasGLOW@Botanic Gardens - until 11th November
This Halloween, step into a magical world full of light, fantasy and fun at a brand-new event where Glasgow’s West End will be transformed by the imaginations behind the country’s biggest sound and light shows and the itison team.
Through the iconic gates of Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens, the world of GlasGLOW awaits.
Wander into another realm where dragons live on and worlds of light, sound and magic wait to be discovered with a finale that has to be seen to be believed.
Even better there’s firepits for toasting marshmallows; stalls with hot drinks (and hot toddies) to keep you warm as you explore; and a food village with plenty of gourmet goodies.
Brushes at War@Kelvingrove - throughout November
Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum will mark this years WW1 anniversary with the European debut of a world-class exhibition of 219 original paintings and drawings by the troops who served in World War I. Following a chronological narrative Brushes with War; Art from the Front Line portrays most major battles and all aspects of the First World War. Depicted in oils, watercolours and drawings the artworks were created by frontline soldiers from numerous countries from 1914 to 1918.
The artworks illustrate the first-hand experiences and struggles through the eyes of the men who actually fought in combat, were wounded in action, taken prisoner and survived aerial dogfights. Independent of official censorship and free from the embellishment of popular propaganda the works share something of the soldiers’ personal brushes with war, capturing insights, moods and motifs often missed by official photographers and observers of the war.
Tickets are £7 and available at the door.
