Glasgow’s bustling with things to do for you this week and here are my top picks to get your Thursday fix
1: Tatty Bon’s Freshers Lock In
Those of you familiar with Mr Ben’s, 13th Note and Mono will no doubt be acquainted with this little hidden gem. Tatty Bon on Parnie Street returns with it’s annual freshers lock in. The doors are open late, cake and fizz is on the table and a sweet sweet discount of 15% for those who spend over £10 (easy done). With the gallant gent from All Tore Up and a whole mess of new stock (loads of gorgeous carpet bags and dress gloves) if you’re in to late night shopping do stop on by.
Best for: Head hear if you want affordable one of vintage pieces. Nice blend of wool and tweed in stock as well as fun custom necklaces and broaches. Good for party dresses.
2: Urban Outfitters Lock In
Another lock in…ooo you late night shoppers are spoiled. With an art exhibition from recoat (expect some fucking brilliant street art) and live music from the super talented Kitty the Lion and lots of coffee drop on my here to enjoy a 20% discount and live music.
Best for: getting your brand fix…new APC and Vaudeville & Burlesque stuff is awesome. Grungey or preppy looks rain supreme here.3: The Only Way is Glasgow Fashion Show (TOWIG)
If city centre isn’t your thing tonight the Oran Mor will be playing host to TOWIG – the only way is Glasgow – a fashion event and fundraiser for Spirit Aid. With designers from Jeniveve Berlin Millinery, Katerina Lambrou & Nicci.N as well as a host of entertainment defintiely wort a shout if you’re in the area. With a host of vintage and jewellery stalls good if you still want to get shopping fix.
Best for: if want to see some Scottish talent on the runway deff worth a shout. Imagine atmosphere will be amazing and it’s for a super good cause.
4: Scottish Ballet Autumn Season Opening
I love a wee bit of the ballet and tonight Scottish Ballet’s Autumn seasons launches the gorgeous 30’s styled Pennies from Heaven in a double bill with Jorma Elo’s Kings 2 End. Both pieces look to be beautifully choreographed and the Pennies from Heaven Trailer already has me dying a bit at the costumes.
Best for: Getting a bit of your culture in innit 😉 Good if you enjoy the theatre, music and beautiful costumes.
I’ll be trying to make my way round as many of these tonight…def popping in to Tatty Bon early and then ballet with the boy- so expect some form of review of my manic evening later this week.
Top things to do at the weekend at all?
