There will be loads to see and do at various points along Glasgow’s style mile,

  • Buchanan Street
    • The Toy Box (outside Frasers) – What will come out of the Christmas toy box? Will it be Santa and his favourite teddy bear or one of his dancing Christmas Puddings?
    • The Juke Box (outside Glasgow Royal Concert Hall) – Hear the Brazilian Christmas Samba Band!
    • The Magic Box (near Princes Square) Boxes of magic tricks and mythical creatures set to amaze the crowds
      • A Magician with a Dickensian Twist – Sir Foxley, the sleight of hand showman, will baffle, amuse and maybe even pick a pocket or two
      • Festive Frolics – A pair of slightly round Christmas Fairies, Sugar and Plum, seasonally greedy and looking for a laugh with the Glasgow crowds!
  • Argyle Street
    • The Gift Box (outside Marks & Spencer) – Come and meet a walking talking Christmas present! Will you get one to take away with you?
  • Sauchiehall Street
    • The Ice Box (Pedestrianized Zone)
      • Snow Queen – A stunning snow-white Snow Queen on stilts blasts about the streets as the icicles that hang from her fingers tinkle like glass, blowing the North Wind into faces and sprinkling them with snow.
      • Jacks of Frost – Stunning stilt-walkers with a spiky icy touch.
    • The Musical Box  (outside Dunnes Store, 3.30pm – 4pm) A parade of drummers will beat their infectious rhythms through the crowd before they are lifted high into the sky to create a breath-taking and magical hanging child’s mobile of live drummers.
  • Royal Exchange Square
    • The Selection Box (outside Gallery of Modern Art) A gift awaits shoppers from the Glasgow Loves Christmas Selection Box!
      • The Mischievous Elves – They should be busily making presents ready for Christmas Eve. Luckily, they have sneaked to the street to share incredible balloon hats, costumes and toys for Glasgow shoppers.
      • Colourful Green Screen – A green screen photography booth will transport visitors to a festive destination to have their picture taken as a memento of the Style Mile Spectacular!
