Best Events in December

It's the most wonderful time of the year. December is when we all come out of our winter hibernation, crack out the sequins, stick on a dodgy jumper, and make a bee-line for that bloke from accounting. Glorious. But whether you're feeling like a Santa or a Scrooge this year, there are some great events this December in Glasgow, from festive themed fun, to your usual dose of banging club nights and incredible gigs. Here's our pick of the crop of what's on in Glasgow this month.
