Glasgow is never short of goingons, and this month is no exception. Whether you’re a fresh-faced first year ready to get to know the city, or you’ve been pacing these streets your whole life, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Tomorrow doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom…
52girls#5 Glasgow takeover!
21st September @ The Poetry Club
An all-inclusive event celebrating women, women in music and women’s exploration of music. Dance in the name of empowerment, with all entry donations going towards Rape Crisis.
20th September @ Broadcast
Having just done a fundraiser for BelgrAid, the new kids on the block Steamed Jams aren’t just sound people but provide an absolutely bouncing night out. Uni will have just started so get down for a carefree boogie before those deadlines begin to pile up.
Denis Sulta & Special Guest
23rd September @ Berkeley Suit
A Glasgow Institution, Sulta is going all night at one of the coolest clubs in the vicinity. With only 10 tickets on the door, get down early or don’t get in at all.
Doors Open Festival
15th – 21st September @ various venues
Now in its 28th year, this annual event is the perfect way to get to know parts of Glasgow you’ve never seen before. Over 100 historic buildings will open their doors to the public, for free – from a brewery, to a synagogue, to a candle factory, and many more, with a diverse programme of events within. It’s a true testament to the culture and heritage embedded in the city’s buildings.
Celebrate Muslim Women’s Writing
29th September @ Glasgow Women’s Library
An afternoon of spoken word and performances on the theme of relationships, by Muslim women writers and creatives. There will also be open discussions over afternoon tea with the Muslim writers Safina Mazhar, Sara Shaarawi and Sufiya Ahmed, among others.
