Last month my family and I went to Glasgow to see the popular BBC show ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. After trying to get cheap flights and not being able to we went by boat and road into Glasgow and stayed at one of the hotels there for two nights. I’d booked the tickets for the show on line before we went, and it was just as well as there was no seats available for that particular performance. It was an afternoon show, totally packed out and some of the audience must have thought they were actually dancing for the BBC so poshly dressed were they. Although not allowed to take pictures during the performance,
we did manage to take some photographs, before the show as the usual announcement was made that no photos or recording could be done during the performance.
As the show was on a Saturday we didn’t get into town until the Sunday to do a little shopping, but even on a Sunday the centre of Glasgow was buzzing, I haven’t seen Belfast that busy even on a Saturday afternoon.
Of course there was the customary Bagpipe player,
blasting out his melodious tunes, Scotland the Brave being the one we heard there. This is a vibrant city, friendly inhabitants and well worth a visit.
