Ah, the impeccable vibes of spooky season. The brisk air, crunchy leaves, big sweaters and darker days provide a cosy allure all around Glasgow. As the favourite holiday of many, Halloween is well-celebrated around the city, and a brand new Dark Carnival is coming to the rooftop bar VEGA this month.
VEGA’s Halloween celebration promises a day of magic and captivating performances from the realms of Burlesque, Illusion, and Contortion. The event is taking place on Saturday, October 28, with two unique Dark Carnival happenings. A cabaret and an elevated dinner will be hosted at VEGA’s sky-high bar from 12pm until 4pm and 6pm until late.
Rockabilly pin-up Tootsie Annie will be on during the afternoon performances, who will bring her one-of-a-kind burlesque style to the Carnival, as well as must-see mind-bending performances from illusionist Prof. Cogsworth that will leave guests questioning reality.
Puppeteer Paul Ross will be hosting the cabaret session, complete with his master puppets, and professional contortionist and purveyor of strange, Minnie Knot is sure to please with some extreme flexibility. In the immersive evening session, artists are set to interact with tables, weaving a web of wonder and mystery in VEGA, alongside their performances.
What is more, guests will enjoy two limited edition Halloween-inspired cocktails, plenty of glasses of bubbly, and one dish from an exclusive menu as part of the ticket price. Don’t miss out on trying the They All Float Down Here, a monster cocktail with Mapmakers Rum, Glayva, lime, and Orgeat, or the chilling Vampire’s Kiss with Rock Rose Navy Strength gin, Velvet Falernum, passion fruit and citrus.
The ticket includes entertainment, welcome snacks, two welcome Halloween cocktails, one brunch main meal and a half bottle of Prosecco per person. If this sounds like a bit of you, you can book your spot on VEGA’s website for £39 per person.
