Glasgow Fun Puzzle Treasure Hunt! Single route or double for racing!

@ Glasgow Central Station on Various dates from Wednesday 29th May 2024

The Great Game Outdoor Treasure Hunts are a great choice for getting outside this bank holiday, and you may even learn a little more about this city. You'll be given a map, compass and clues to solve as a team, which will lead you to your grand prize at the end - a mystery pub where a table will be booked and waiting for you. Even better? You'll get 20% of your bill at the end.


A Mediterranean-inspired venue with a lineup of quirky activities to choose from, there's all sorts of fun events taking place at ARTÀ across both May bank holidays. We're talking stand-up comedy nights with some of the UK's best comedians, Spanish-themed afternoon teas featuring live music and ABBA tribute nights, with a talented duo providing the tunes while you tuck into a two course meal. Even better? tickets start from as little as £10 to these fun outings.


Located on Argyle Street, Sloans is the place to be for all your bank holiday fun. These guys host a Friday night ceilidh every single week, where for as little as £16 per person you can dance the night away to a live band. What's more, you can attend a comedy show on the Sunday, which comes complete with a sumptuous roast dinner, all for just £26.

Glasgow Brunch Social

@ Flight Club Glasgow on Various dates from Saturday 1st June 2024

Kick off your bank holiday weekend early with a boozy brunch social at Flight Club in the city centre. This quirky, fairground-themed bar is offering two-hour sessions where you'll receive a whole bottle of prosecco each, as well as unlimited sharing paddles of delicious pizza. You'll spend the first half of this event getting competitive on their electronic dartboards, which offer all kinds off fun minigames and add up the scores for you, before relaxing in the bar with more tasty slices.

The Social

The Social is coming in hot with all kinds of fun things to do in Glasgow this bank holiday weekend. Get on your glad rags and shimmy on over to dance the night away to DJs blasting tunes from the decks on Sunday, as well as nurse that hangover with live music come Monday.
