VISIT THE SHOW
We are so excited to be hosting Sling Show Scotland 2018 at Glasgow Science Centre. Right on Pacific Quay, it has amazing transport links and lots of free parking for visitors (with a validated ticket).
There is a cafe and coffee pod on site, as well as a Starbucks, and the wonderful BBC cafe just across the way. Packed lunches are more than welcome.
We are also delighted to say that this year your ticket price will also include entry to the Science Centre for a little bit of entertainment for your small people.
There's a range of ways to get to the venue, by car, train, bus or even on foot if you're feeling fit... please see below for more information.
From the M8 (east or west), take Junction 24 and follow the brown tourist signs.
For those more familiar with Glasgow and travelling East along the M8, it’s possible to leave at Junction 19, travel down the Broomielaw, cross at the Clyde Arc ('Squinty Bridge') and travel along Govan Road and into Pacific Quay.
From the M77, stay in the left hand lane (marked Tradeston/Kinning Park) as the motorway merges with the M8. Take the next exit (Junction 21) and follow the brown tourist signs.
From the Clydeside Expressway, take SECC (E) exit and then follow the brown tourist signs.
The Exhibition Centre train station is located on the Argyle Line with regular services running from Glasgow Central and Partick Stations. There is a covered walkway from the station to SECC, from where you walk past the Crowne Plaza Hotel and over the river to Glasgow Science Centre (5-10 mins).
