One of Scotland’s highly anticipated, favourite festive event is returning to Glasgow this winter and with it being cancelled last year due to the pandemic it’s expected to be a good ‘un. The popular Irn-Bru Carnival will return to the SEC Centre from December 22 until January 14 with plenty of attractions to keep everyone occupied for hours.
Early bird tickets will go live at 10am on September 7 and start from £11 for seniors, giving your whole Christmas crew a chance to bag their annual festive fun at a lower price. To announce the early bird tickets, the carnival organisers have set up a large Hook-A-Duck in River Clyde.
Last year, the funfair was packed with thrill rides like the 40m high Starflyer and Midnight Express Matterhorn, plus family rides, children’s rides, games, stalls and an inflatable play area for children, it was no doubt an unmissable event in the festive calendar for both locals and Scots as the programme has been running for over a century. Visitors to the Irn Bru Carnival could also enjoy trampolines, a climbing wall, a 15m-high Ferris Wheel, dodgems, a ghost train, a crazy circus fun house and an inflatable play area for little ones.
The event in 2019 saw Europe’s largest indoor funfair celebrate its 100th birthday with its biggest event so far, combining the old with the new to celebrate the huge milestone.
In true carnival form, there will be various food outlets within the hall selling everything from candy floss, hot dogs, chicken, to burger and chips. General admission tickets will cost £18.50, with Young Scot / Kidz Card holders paying a reduced rate, and kids 3 or under going for free.
