Just drop into the Hub and enjoy all that’s going on including music, poetry, art, exhibitions and refreshments.

The event is a collaboration between researchers in the School of Health and Wellbeing and some of the community groups who use the Hub and community partners.

Journey through the escape room style fun challenges using your talents or some new skills you will learn along the way to ‘Transform Glasgow’s Health’ in less than one hour!
