GLASGOW youngsters will be able to enjoy a weekend of musical activities designed especially for them this November.
A range of events, Big Music for Minis, will take over Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with concerts, workshops and creative events for babies and children aged up to seven years.
Many of the events, presented by Glasgow UNESCO City of Music, will be free.
Groups participating include SambaYaBamba, Live Music Now, the Celine Donoghue Band, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and Funbox.
There will be musical journeys through space and around the world, cabaret, Scots song, a Ceilidh and much more.
Councillor David McDonald, Chair of Glasgow Life and Deputy Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “We look forward to welcoming hundreds of children and their grown-ups to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for Big Music for Minis.
“There’s so much to enjoy and lots to learn along the way. You can bang a drum, listen to a string quartet, dance in a Ceilidh and begin to learn Scots song and much more with some of Scotland’s most popular musical artists.
“So do join us this November as Big Music for Minis shows once more that in our UNESCO City of Music, for Glaswegians and visitors to our home city, music comes in all shapes and sizes and is for everyone to enjoy.”
