St. Enoch Centre has partnered with Glasgow female networking group, Glasglow Girls Club, to host a one-of-a-kind event.
Between 9-10 September, Glasglow Girls Club will hold a ‘takeover’ of the leading city centre destination, with a variety of workshops, live music, and a book signing with author Sophie Gravia all lined up in what promises to be a memorable weekend. Here’s what you can expect from the event.
Book signing with Sophie Gravia
Sophie Gravia, author of the bestselling novels A Glasgow Kiss and What Happens in Dubai, will be attending with Waterstones to sign copies of her latest book, Meet Me in Milan on 9 September.
Held on the ground floor of the shopping centre in the newly rebranded ‘Connection Café’, Sophie Gravia will meet and greet fans from 3pm on Saturday.
With 25% of Scottish adults reportedly feeling lonely some or all of the time, St. Enoch Centre is collaborating with Glasglow Girls Club to bring locals together in an exciting new networking opportunity. Glasglow Girls Club x St. Enoch Centre Speed Friending encourages women to meet like-minded women who are keen to build friendships and meaningful connections in a relaxed and fun environment. Event includes a sparkling afternoon tea with Muffin Break.
The 40,000-women-strong membership organisation has organised, in partnership with Ya Dancer Silent Studios, an array of silent discos to take place, with themes including Kylie Minogue, 80s tunes and children’s songs.
A ‘Pre-Loved Plaza’ pop-up will take place on the first floor of the centre throughout the weekend, offering pre-loved garments and vintage items to thrifty shoppers. The organisation’s business members will also be able to sell and promote their items in the very first Glasglow Girls Club Shop, located on the first floor.
An array of workshops will take place over the weekend, covering topics such as creative writing, arm knitting and manifesting love.
