A day of history, music and comedy – educational, entertaining and hilarious!
- Glasgow’s Underground
Ever fancied learning more about our much loved ‘Clockwork Orange’? Glasgow’s first ‘Underground’ wasn’t the Subway – it was the ‘City and District’ from Finnieston to the High Street, under Queen Street Station. Within 10 years, Glasgow built what was for some years the world’s biggest ‘tube’ system – a total of 14 miles through 27 stations. Well known TV and radio broadcaster Colin Mackay outlines the fight against fear about ‘going underground’ and explains why these lines helped to maintain Glasgow’s industrial supremacy. Partick Library, 6.30pm
- Lane Bar Open Mic
Come along and show of your vocal talent at the Open Mic in the Lane Bar and running until midnight every Tuesday. Whatever you want to perform, the stage is yours. The Lane Bar pride themselves on their laidback attitude and friendly atmosphere, so don’t worry if you’ve never performed before, everyone is welcome! The Lane Bar, 9pm
- Best in the West Comedy
The Best in the West featuring Phil Differ, Gary Little and Bruce Morton. Phil Differ has spent his career making other people funny as a writer for ‘Scotch and Wry’, ‘Naked Video’, ‘Chewin’ the Fat’ and ‘Only an Excuse’. A late started as a stand-up, but now a must see.
