Glasgow is set to get even more stylish next month when the city hosts its first ever Shopping Festival.
Running from the 25th to 30th May, the Glasgow Style Mile Shopping Festival will shine a spotlight on the city centre, which has earned a reputation as the best shopping destination in the UK outside of London.
“JOIN SHEARER CANDLES ON THURSDAY 26th OF MAY AS THEY SCENT THE FESTIVAL HUB ON BUCHANAN ST WITH THEIR TOP SELLING CANDLES, DIFFUSERS & SCENTCHIPS. EXCLUSIVE OFFERS TO BE HAD!”
Over the five day event Glasgow will come alive with a full line-up of activity from styling sessions and trend tips to make-up masterclasses and new product demonstrations. Shoppers will also be in for a treat with many retailers and restaurants offering special discounts and promotions throughout the festival.
As part of the celebrations, an eye-catching Festival Hub will be constructed at the bottom of Buchanan Street offering an informative and experiential environment. As well as being a place where people can pop in and find out what’s on, the Hub will feature a packed programme with takeovers from some of the city’s top retailers.
The Festival Hub will be split into three distinct areas and will focus on fashion, beauty and lifestyle/home with professional stylists, make-up artists and interior designers on hand to offer one-to-one advice. Busy shoppers will be able to take a break and enjoy a spot of pampering, from blow dries at the pop-up hair salon to manicures at the Hub’s very own nail bar. There will also be a selection of the city’s best restauranteurs showcasing tasty treats.
Glasgow city centre offers a unique and diverse shopping experience with over 1,500 stores including the Style Mile – the one mile square in the very centre of Glasgow. The Style Mile features an unrivalled collection of high-street, designer and boutique brands including Buchanan Galleries, St. Enoch Centre, House of Fraser, Princes Square, Argyll Arcade, John Lewis and Debenhams, all of which have a jam packed calendar of activity throughout the festival.
