Spread your wings this summer and fly down to Glasgow Fort for a wonderfully wild time.
The great outdoors will be taking over, with beautiful installations inspired by the Butterflies, Birds and Bees of the British countryside.
Whether you have a young family wanting summer holiday entertainment with an educational twist, are a selfie lover and want a great shot for The Gram, or just fancy passing the time surrounded by poetry and peaceful sculptures, we've got it covered.
Activities will be happening 3 times a week at the fully interactive Nature Hub with a variety of perfectly pitched performances popping up over the summer. Discover the great outdoors with our Eco Explorers, learn about looking after our world with the hilarious Litter Bug, and create a BUZZ with The Hive, a brilliant bunch of bees with games galore up their sleeve! Expect interactive storytelling, interactive play and creative crafts celebrating the brilliance of our natural world.
As well as people powered fun and imaginative installations, why not follow the wild and wonderful butterfly trail scattered all around the centre.
With the outdoors taking over Glasgow Fort this summer the skies the limit!
