May Bank Holiday 2017 Events and Parties

Our recommendations for the May Bank Holiday weekend in Glasgow. Don't get caught out this May: whether you're soaking up some DMN inspired rays (one can dream...) upon a park bench in one of our recommended beer gardens, heading out to a raucous club night or simply relaxing by the river, we've got 'em all lined up. Don't you dare let the two bank holiday weekends go to waste - down that dram, sup on something strong and get on out there.
