Really any excuse to visit one of Europe’s best museums. Riverside Transport Museum. The multi award winning museum is free entry, and currently has a celebration of Scottish explorers, including Obi Wan Kenobi himself Ewan McGregor’s bike from Long Way Down. Guaranteed hours of fun and for a couple of pounds you can actually visit the Tall Ship, one Scotland’s oldest ships built in 1896.
Armin Van Buuren @ O2 Academy
18 years and over this one we’re afraid but Colours are bringing the No1 trance DJ in the world to the o2 Academy this Friday for a three hour exclusive set. Guaranteed to be one of the best atmospheres in Glasgow, if you’re a fan of all things electronica you can’t afford to miss the one, the only, Armin Van Buuren.

Adults are admitted free, although sadly not permitted on the inflatables.
Lip Sync Challenge @ Walkabout 26th March
You’ve all marvelled at the US version, grimaced while watching the UK version and eventually came to the conclusion that UK celebs simply don’t have the star power as their US counterparts. Now it’s your turn, to lip sync to some of your favourite songs in Walkabout. No shame equals prizes
Adele @ SSE Hydro
Pretty much the world’s greatest singer. Adele brings her massively successful tour to Glasgow’s SSE Hydro, tickets sold out in record time but fans who missed out the first time will have been ecstatic to learn a new batch were released for fans who don’t have a ticket. Get in quick, definitely not a gig to be missed.
Jedward @ O2 abc 27th March
Laugh if you want at the two Adorkable Irish singers, but Jedward have made millions playing off their double act. They count Conor McGregor amongst their friends so we’d watch what you say to them. Expect a fun easy going night and plenty of screaming fans.
