After a jam-packed summer, there’s no slowing down as the city prepares itself for an autumn program of diverse events and things to see and do. First off, we’d recommend the Doors Open Festival, taking place 11th – 17th September. You can discover a huge range of hidden gems amongst buildings rarely open to the public. The event really uncovers some of the city’s most interesting corners, giving you access to over 28 church buildings, the Garnetill Synagogue, the impressive Clydeport building, the Arlington Baths and Turkish Sauna and a huge range of artist-lead events, garden walks and more. There’s a kid’s program too if you’ve little ones in tow.

Another September festival worth noting is Wildfest; a celebration of city greenspaces and the perfect way to get a little slice of the countryside within the bustling streets. There’s a moth and bat watching night, Tweeting for Toddlers in the city parks and  Hidden Sounds –  a musical journey through Springburn’s Hidden Garden. If that doesn’t quite fill your boots then check out the Clydebuilt Festival. This celebration of all things ship-building is the first of its kind and will see marquees filled with music, activities and crafts on the bank of the Clyde, as well as a ceilidh on board the Tall Ship and bands playing until the wee hours.

That should be quite enough to be getting on with but remember too, that as one of the world’s leading cities for concerts and gigs, we’re not short of toe-tapping, evening entertainment throughout September either! Acclaimed musical, Blood Brothers, takes up residence at the King’s Theatre this month, and TV regular Joel Dommet brings his show to the Theatre Royal.

Once you’ve exhausted yourself exploring the city streets, remember that the bars and restaurants of Sauchiehall Street are just a stroll away from the Acorn Hotel or, if you prefer downplayed hipster cool, head into the ultra-trendy Finnieston for your foodie fix – sorted!
