One last weekend

It's the last weekend before Christmas, which means you are probably going to be cleaning and last minute shopping or packing or doing whatever it is you need to do to get ready for Christmas. But if you're not, you could do any number of fun things in Glasgow.

Friday evening

If you're a swim fan, you'll want to attend Duel in the Pool, which sees European swimmers taking on the USA team at what is called the Ryder Cup of swimming. 
Saturday afternoon

Enjoy live big band versions of your favourite Christmas tunes with mince pies and mulled wine at Sloans - a perfect way to wrap up your shopping.

Saturday evening

Scottish Ballet's Christmas productions are always worth braving the horrible weather - this year's Hansel & Gretel should be no exception. 

Sunday afternoon

Be sure to check out Living Proof  - an exhibition of work inspired by Charles Darwin's HMS Beagle expedition. Artists include Elizabeth Blackadder, John Byrne, Scott Campbell, Ashley Cook, Eileen Cooper, Diane Dawson, Helen Fay, Alasdair Gray, Kenny Hunter, Marion MacPhee, Jila Peacock, Ray Richardson, Murray Robertson, Andy Scott, Alasdair Wallace, Fiona Watson and Adrian Wiszniewski. (Goats in Trees by Fiona Watson)

Sunday evening

If it keeps raining, the Irn-Bru Carnival at the SECC might be the best way to wrap up the weekend. It's Europe's largest indoor carnival and features rides and games for all ages.
