This unique free event at the Hunterian Museum celebrates ‘St. Andrew’s Fair Saturday 2018’. With stalls, guest speakers and a cosplay competition, there is something for everyone!

The event will contribute to the global 'Fair Saturday' movement and the celebration of St. Andrew’s day to boost social inclusion, fairness and sharing inspired by Scotland’s National Day. We will be encouraging donations on the night to support development of a widening participation outreach project with young people from disadvantaged areas across the city.

Showcasing world-class research and related objects from the University of Glasgow's collections, including the world’s first comic, this dynamic and entertaining comic-con evening will feature a wide variety of activities and panel discussions with a number of special guests.

Comic-themed costumes are highly recommended!

‌The event will include a comics-themed DJ and a cash bar.

Night at the Museum is supported by Scotland's Winter Festivals.
