What’s On For Kids got such a fright this week when we realised that the Gibson Street Gala
is this Saturday. I mean where has the time gone? And June is such a busy month, a month of milestones - the last days of nursery, the last days of primary school, end-of-year shows and events where we can see just how quickly our children are changing.
It is also packed with fun things for kids and families to do - the West End Festival is back as is Glasgow Science Festival. Each weekend there’s a lot of competition for our time without even mentioning school fayres!
What’s On For Kids doesn’t like to hark on too much about the weather (it is what it is) but fingers crossed for dry days for the Festival Parade, Glasgow Mela and, of course, Gibson Street Gala.
Look out for the Science Festival at Kelvingrove
and at Strathclyde University
and, of course, Science Sunday
at Glasgow University. Science on the Streets Walking
tours are also popular. For the West End Festival, meet Julia Donaldson and her most recent collaborator, the fab Nick Sharratt
- this will sell out quickly.
Of course, when it does rain there are some new options to add to the soft play/Kelvingrove/swimming/bowling mix, especially if your children are older. RollerStop
, runs roller disco sessions and lessons for all ages and through the wall, children (and adults) can bounce away to their heart’s content (following strict instructions) at RYZE
.Hatching the Past: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies
continues at Kelvingrove. Over in Edinburgh there are more dinosaurs at the zoo...
