After four sell out shows at various venues across Glasgow, this popular annual fiesta returns to Saint Luke’s with another  piñata-packed night of live music, dance and theatre performances, Latin tunes, face-painting, lashings of tequila, cocktails and Mexican street food.

Guests are encouraged to come dressed in their finest Calaca apparel, and dance the night away to Rapido Mariachi – Scotland’s best loved sombrero-topped four-piece – and resident BALKANARAMA DJ Ewan Evans, aka, Señor Poco Loco.

Face painters will also be on hand throughout the night to create the much-loved sugar skull artwork.

Meet the Widow

(28 October, , Hutchesons City Grill 158 Ingram St, Glasgow G1 1EJ)

Tickets: from £140 for two people

This dark and decadent Veuve Clicquot event was a huge hit last year and promises more of the same this time around.

Party goers will be invited to walk the black carpet before being immersed in to a world of glamour, darkness and Champagne, as Hutchesons is transformed into a gloriously dark haunted mansion.

This year’s theme is inspired by Vogue’s Edward Enninful ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ anniversary film featuring Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, with costumes and makeup set to reflect greed, pride, lust, gluttony, envy, sloth or wrath.

Starting from 6.30pm, guests will enjoy a three course Champagne dinner in the City Grill complete with creepy drinks concoctions, giveaways, a secret surprise and bubbles in abundance courtesy of Veuve Clicquot, of course.
