14 Things To Do In Glasgow Over The Easter Holidays!
This year, the two weeks of glorious Easter fun are from Saturday 1st April – Monday 17th April. For kids, it’s bliss. For adults, it’s ‘oh dear, what on earth are we going to do with them?’. Never fear! We’ve put together a big old bumper list of fun for all, for the weans, the grannies, and everyone in between. Enjoy!
There are heaps of fun events taking place throughout the holidays. Join an Easter egg hunt, explore gardens and meet the Highland Coos! Click on the link in the title for full listings.
A huge array of activities: some free and all fun! Visit the birds of prey centre, take part in watersports, meet the Easter bunny and much, much more.
Everyone is invited to join this four hour celebratory procession through Glasgow. Find out more about the origins of the festival here.
Art and Making
Pop in and paint, or book in for the Easter Pottery Camp if you want to go the whole way and make, bake and paint your own beautiful creations!
Learning, building and playing with Lego! Build and design some seriously impressive creations and meet lots of new pals.
Visit the exhibitions and take part in all kinds of events. The full listings can be seen here and include everything from lampshade making to crazy-moustache creation!
Sports and Gamers
Perfect for when the kids just have a little bit too much energy. They have special deals running – snap up two games for just £7pp!
It’s not the school holidays until mum and dad have been thoroughly shown up by their kids’ skills at an obscure sport. Get yourself along for a roller disco which may or may not feature the Easter bunny on skates. If that’s not worth a visit then I don’t know what is!
Shows and Performances
Wrestling in a church in Shawlands on a Friday night – you couldn’t make it up! All jokes aside, this is an awesome opportunity to see some professionals in the ring, and will give the kids plenty to talk about when they get back to school.
Ideally suited to kids aged 4-7, but the whole family is welcome to come along and enjoy! An oldie, and a goodie performed by Scottish Youth Theatre.
Check out the website for shows, workshops and more. Perfect for a wee rainy day with all the family!

From the science of superheroes to the egg-drop challenge, the whole family will enjoy the shows and fun happening at the science centre this Easter. Combine it with a trip to the IMAX afterwards and you might even manage one of those amazing naps that only ever seems to happen when you’ve spent money on a lovely comfy seat at the cinema.
Kelvingrove is always an immersive experience for all the family, but don’t miss the Frank Quitely exhibition. A local lad turned comic book artist, his portfolio is vast, colourful and the focus of the latest exhibition.
