Why wait until the snow is falling all around you to book your Christmas events this year? By that time, they may have all sold out! So, whilst some of you may already have the tree up - no comment - the rest of you will want to know the things to do in Glasgow this Christmas. But don't worry, Skiddle has you covered, as no one wants to get to Boxing Day and realise they've spent the whole time indoors sipping eggnog now do they?

We've got so much for you to choose from that you won't need to go anywhere else for your Christmas events, there are huge warehouse raves,  scrumptious Gin and Food tasting events at art centres, and some of the biggest names in UK comedy coming for a side-splitting night of laughs, and even a Ska boat rave that traverses you through the city's waterways on Boxing Day.

So, whilst we understand that you'll want to stay in on Christmas Eve so as not to disturb Santa, you've got no excuses for the rest of the Christmas activities in Glasgow, and we want to see you down at the front, boogying off the Winter chill with us. So get scrolling, secure your tickets, and make this Christmas one to remember!
