Finland100 – Straw Dimensions

Embassy of Finland culture pick: The nature of straw is delicate, light and warm but in its fragility you will also find strength. This exhibition will open your senses to new, unexplored dimensions of straw, brought to you by a straw artist Pirjo Väisänen - one of Finland's finest straw artists.
25 / 11 / 2017

Huutajat (Screaming Men)

Embassy of Finland culture pick: Hear a choir that doesn’t sing a note as Huutajat, the Finnish shouting men’s choir, perform at Being A Man festival. National anthems, news headlines, political texts and international treaties are subverted, stressed and shouted by the force of forty men.
26 / 11 / 2017

Frigg tour

Embassy of Finland culture pick: There’s an enthusiastic appreciation of their fiddle-founded Nordgrass sound - a mix of Nordic folk and bluegrass. Possibly the most exciting, uplifting, gut-wrenching & hip-twitching band in the Northern Hemisphere. Don’t miss this blizzard of jigs, reels & bluegrass inventions!
30 / 11 / 2017

The Anglo-Danish Society

Christmas Lunch at St Katherine's Precinct. We will meet in the church at 12.30 for a very brief and uplifting Christmas service by Pastor Flemming Kloster Poulsen. A traditional Christmas lunch - perhaps with some modern twists, too - will be served in the adjoining church hall at 1 p.m.

Juletrefest. Christmas Party at High School of Glasgow Pavilion, Anniesland. Seasonal food and drink, carols round the tree, Lucia procession, a multi-gift raffle, Santa and gifts for the children.
03 / 12 / 2017

Michael Monroe tour

Embassy of Finland culture pick: Monroe’s songs are hard-hitting and honors tradition while searching for some new kick-ass ingredients to mix into the primordial rock‘n’roll stew. The band gives the more melodic material a punky attitude that the songs wear with style.
