Enter the weird, wacky and downright wonderful this Halloween at the immersive Dark Carnival in the city centre.

You’re invited to embrace the eerie and extraordinary as VEGA’s new Halloween offering promises a weekend of spine-tingling magic and captivating performances from the realms of Burlesque, Illusion, and Contortion.

Debuting on Halloween weekend on Saturday, 28th October, two enthralling Dark Carnival events - a cabaret, and an elevated dinner will be hosted at VEGA’s sky-high bar from 12 until 4pm and 6pm until late into the night. Each event has been a carefully curated spectacle, featuring the mysterious and the macabre against the stunning backdrop of Glasgow’s skyline and neon-lit Halloween-transformed interiors. Book your place at vegaglasgow.com.

Afternoon performances include Rockabilly pin up Tootsie Annie, who will bring her inimitable burlesque style to the Carnival, alongside must-see mind-bending performances from illusionist Prof. Cogsworth that will leave you questioning reality.

Puppeteer Paul Ross will be hosting the cabaret session, complete with his master puppets. While professional contortionist and purveyor of strange, Minnie Knot is sure to please with her skills of extreme flexibility.

In the interactive evening session, artists will not just perform, but interact with tables, weaving a web of wonder and mystery in VEGA.

In addition to the magnetic entertainment, guests will enjoy two limited edition Halloween-inspired cocktails, frightful fizz, and one dish from an exclusive menu as part of the ticket price. Don’t miss out on trying ‘They All Float Down Here,’ a monster cocktail with Mapmakers Rum, Glayva, lime, and Orgeat, or the ghoulish ‘Vampire’s Kiss’ with Rock Rose Navy Strength gin, Velvet Falernum, passion fruit, and citrus.
