We bid a fond farewell to what has been a huge year for Glasgow and Scotland with a day full of free family fun and entertainment across George Square with music in the Alpine Bar and fun and games in our Christmas Workshop!

3pm - 6pm Gunna Sound Ceilidh Band in the Alpine Bar

Gunna Sound's repertoire includes a full selection of round the room Ceilidh dances and an extensive song list that usually invokes comments at the end of the night: 'so you're not just a Ceilidh band!' The boys try and cater for all tastes and their musical influences range from John Prine, Steve Earle, the Saw Doctors to Norman MacLean, Graham Mitchell and the Wallochmor Ceilidh Band, along with some good humour and craic!

7pm - 9pm DJ John Ross

Our resident DJ is back, spinning his usual mix of disco, funk and soul to get you in the party mood.
