What to do in Glasgow this Friday 23rd October
Summer of 85 at Glasgow Film Theatre – all week-end – £10.90
French director François Ozon’s film Summer of 85 is on all weekend at Glasgow Film Theatre.
Over one hot summer in 1985, naive teenager Alexis (Félix Lefebvre) falls deeply and dangerously in love with David (Benjamin Voisin). The pair become inseparable on the beaches and dancefloors of sun-soaked Normandy. But devilish and spikey David sees himself as a free spirit and refuses to be tied down. How will Alexis respond when he realises he can’t have David all to himself?

Rajni Perera: Traveller at Tramway – from 24th October to 14th February 2021 – Free but booking needed
Tramway presents ‘Traveller’, the first exhibition in the UK by multi-disciplinary artist Rajni Perera.
Sri Lanka-born Toronto-based artist Perera’s bold and intricately crafted paintings, sculptures, textile works, and installations explore issues of ancestorship, hybridity, futurity, and identity through the lens of science fiction. Influenced by a range of visual references including Indian miniaturisim, Astro-blackness, paleontology, magical realism, scientific illustration and fashion as well as her personal experiences of migration, Perera’s works evoke alternative histories, new mythologies and possible futures for the diasporic individual. The ancestral legacies embodied in these techniques are forged into ornate, protective garments which become spiritual suits of armour for an empowered and resilient ‘Traveller’ of the future.
Sunday 25 October
Battlefield Window Wonderland – from 6pm – Free
Go for a walk in Battlefield this Sunday. The windows of the neighborhood will all be decorated this Sunday and Monday evening. If you live in the area, there is still time to participate in the event. All the information is in the link below.
