SWEATY Glasgow dancers will heat a nightclub with the energy generated by their own bodies in a first for Scotland

Body heat from revellers at an event in SWG3 will be used to warm the venue and can be stored for weeks, according to organisers.

It is tipped to "drastically" reduce the Finnieston venue's energy consumption, making it more eco-friendly.

Drilling to install the boreholes which will transport and store the heat will begin in a matter of days. 

The showcase event will go ahead during the Cop26 environmental conference in Glasgow on Sunday, November 7. 

Andrew Fleming-Brown, manager of SWG3, said: “It’s a very exciting time for us at SWG3 with work about to begin on the first phase of the innovative BODYHEAT project.

"We’re delighted to announce the launch party Honey Dijon and our special collaboration with her fashion brand for an exclusive BODYHEAT t-shirt. SWG3 hosted the first Comme des Garçons UK Guerrilla Store in 2006 so it feels like the perfect fit that the t-shirt will also be on sale at their DSM stores and online.”

Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 6pm on the venue's website
