The important news this weekend is that the Glasgow Tower (pictured) is open! This is the tallest, free-standing building in Scotland and is feat of engineering. It is the only structure ON EARTH capable of rotating 360 degrees into the prevailing wind. If you’ve been down to Pacific Quay, you’ll know that the prevailing wind is pretty strong. Anyway, the Glasgow Tower has been closed more times than open so now’s your chance!
What’s On For Kids is delighted that the Scottish Mask and Puppet Centre is back with its packed programme of puppet shows and workshops for kids and families. This Sunday, I Spy with PC McKay
marks the start of the Autumn/Winter Programme. At the Scottish Youth Theatre, Family Storytime is back and this weekend.
There’s plenty to choose from this weekend: Going Batty at Linn Park
