Big build-up to a great day out

Evening Times - - NEWS -

KIDS got the chance to be­come in­volved with the Mer­chant City Fes­ti­val and be­came Uni­corns for the day.

Mer­chant Square Fam­ily Zone was set up with free Artist Run Work­shops.

From uni­corns, Greek tem­ples and the Statue of Lib­erty, chil­dren were in­vited to dis­cover Glas­gow’s sur­pris­ing her­itage through lively art work­shops in sculp­ture, cos­tume and much more.

The uni­corn is, un­be­known to many, the na­tional an­i­mal of Scot­land. Rep­re­sent­ing power and pu­rity on our na­tional coat of arms.

Young­sters had the chance to ex­plore the weird and won­der­ful his­tory of Glas­gow in these fam­ily friendly artist led work­shops.

They be­came Uni­corns, made a shrine to their favourite Glas­gow chippy, and built tem­ples.

The event of­fered a range of di­verse, quirky, some­times messy, hands-on and stim­u­lat­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

Glas­gow’s Mer­chant City fes­ti­val fin­ishes to­mor­row where a street food fes­ti­val will be held along with sev­eral other at­trac­tions.
