SOUTHSIDE ROUND UP
Our beloved Southside is one of the best places to be in Glasgow and in our latest segment we give you the best picks of the moment. Whether you are an arts and crafts type, festival type or fun evening activity type we’ve got you covered.
Zippos Circus Bellahouston Park – 1st August 2017
Continuing their tour with a stop in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park the beloved Zippos Circus is back and with added acts. For anyone that hasn’t been to see this show it has been described as ‘Heartstoppingly good fun’ by Time Out and The Guardian even went as far as to say that ‘You feel like an awestruck child’. A fantastic day out for family and friends that is sure to put a smile on your face.
Bellahouston Park welcomed back the Zippos Circus to town. This year was its second consecutive year at the location and it was a night to remember. Featuring family favourites acts as well as all-new spectaculars such as the motorcycle Globe of Death (which saw three riders spinning together at speeds exceeding 60mph) and the amazing Zulu Warriors’ Acrobatic Troupe.

Eminem at Bellahouston Park – 24th August 2017
Guess who’s back! One of Hip Hop’s favourites is headlining our very own Summer Sessions in Bellahouston Park. His first return to Glasgow since his 2013 gig has us excited to our very core. In his prime Eminem was untouchable and after a brief hiatus Slim Shady himself is back with rumours even circulating that a new album may be in the pipeline. Whatever the case Southside opens its arms to one of the most reputable and popular rappers in the game.

Cancer Research Pretty Muddy – 16th September 2017
At times it isn’t enough to just visit an event or festival is it? At times there is something within each and every one of us that tells us to challenge ourselves for a great cause. The challenge in this case is a 5K one must clear in defiance of cancer. Open to every female over the age of 13 this is a chance to show support and solidarity with those battling cancer while simultaneously fundraising for research. Let us take a stand together once more and show cancer that indeed, ‘hell hath no fury like a woman in pink’.
