Daily activities

A better world is possible! 

With COP26 taking place in Glasgow from 31 Oct – 12 Nov,  we’re focusing on sustainability and climate action in our activities programme this autumn.  

We're looking at the personal actions, both small and large, that we can all take to move towards a more sustainable future.  

The activities below are free with your day ticket. They don't need to be pre-booked, but as each activity has limited capacity, please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

You can also add a Planetarium show to your visit. Booking is essential, so don't forget to add tickets to your basket along with your day tickets.

Whilst we're doing all we can to provide activities as listed, the timings below are subject to change. Please check when you arrive at the venue.
