Diamond Jubilee fever swept through Glasgow on Wednesday as The Queen paid a visit to the Scottish city as part of the celebrations to mark 60 years on the throne. Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh were in town for a service of thanksgiving at Glasgow Cathedral, attended by around 1300 important people. Later on they headed to George Square for an all day party in the company of thousands of adoring supporters. In typically British fashion, however, the event was called off due to bad weather!
The city has certainly been getting in the mood for a party of a different nature. Yes folks, this year’s Christmas party nights in Glasgow are set to be bigger and better than ever before and based on last year’s huge uptake for Glaswegian festive goings-on we are ensuring that we have plenty of venues working with us this year! We’d like to welcome both the Hummingbird and Grosvenor Cafe to our roster for 2012. The former’s swanky art-house setting is going to be ideal for ‘That Festive Buzz’, an event that promises great food, drink and music in cool surroundings. The West End’s Grosvenor will be hosting ‘Christmas At The Cafe’ with live music added into the mix, giving the typical office get-together an extra dimension.
And speaking of Glasgow, the city’s very own Andy Murray could just be on the verge of making history by becoming the first British player to reach the final of Wimbledon since Bunny Austin in 1938. Should he go on to win the thing then the sound of Champagne corks will probably be heard across the city and the rest of the UK.
But we can’t play tennis to save our lives, so we’ll leave the hard work to Mr. Murray and look forward to a season of magical Glasgow Christmas parties, whether he is successful or not.
