IT is an annual festive tradition and for years has served up all the fun of the fair to Glaswegians young and old. 

Now, after a year in cold storage, the Irn-Bru Carnival is back and the winter spectacular promises to make up for lost time. 

The hugely popular shows returns to the SEC Centre between December 22 and January 16 following its cancellation last year. With the hub becoming home to the NHS Louisa Jordan, a temporary hospital set-up at the height of the Covid pandemic, festival bosses decided to instead focus all their efforts on 2021's event.

Packed with thrill rides, family rides, and children’s rides, as well as games, stalls and an inflatable play area for the little ones, it will no doubt be an unmissable event in the festive calendar for thousands of Glaswegians.

Glasgow Times:

General admission tickets will cost £16, with Young Scot / Kidz Card holders paying £13, concessions £10 and kids three or under going for free.

Tickets go on sale today at 10am via the carnival website here.
