Roll up to Merchant Square for family fun during October school holiday week

MERCHANT Square in Merchant City, the heart of Glasgow’s cultural, fashion and food quarter, has the perfect solution for hectic parents looking to keep the kids occupied throughout the October school holiday week.

Not only does it offer a week of fun-filled entertainment with a variety of craft workshops, giant games and circus skills for the kids, but its cosmopolitan selection of bars and restaurants, all set within a covered and heated Victorian courtyard, means that parents can find some precious time to unwind and enjoy a meal together while the kids play till their heart’s content.

Jenni Morrison, of Merchant Square, said: “Whether it’s stealing a quiet meal for two while the kids are busy learning circus skills or creating their own model crafts, or indulging in a rare opportunity to enjoy a meal for all the family in the heart of the city centre – children’s menus are available in all our restaurants – Merchant Square is the ideal venue for anyone visiting the city centre with kids during the October school holiday week.

“The fact that all our restaurants have courtyard eating areas, from where parents can keep an eye on their kids at play whilst enjoying a meal, makes the Square the perfect venue – particularly as our covered and heated Victorian courtyard will offer some much-needed respite from the inevitable wind and rain!”

Merchant Square’s family fun October school holiday week series of events run from Monday 15th to Sunday 21st October with workshops running every afternoon from 12pm. Merchant Square is located on Candleriggs in Glasgow city centre.
