Friday 29 October, 2021 at 6 p.m.

Event by The Landing Hub and Bex Anson
220 Broomielaw, Glasgow, G1 4QP,

The Landing Hub opens its doors for the first time to welcome artists and musicians: Strange Loop, the Seed SistAs, the Pilgrims of Nature, and Roo and Pablo for an evening of majestic performance. Expect Scottish folk music, plant wisdom, extraordinary audiovisuals, and the joy of being together.

Bring an offering, dress up as your favourite plant, and immerse yourself in a hypnotic visual installation ‘Strange Loop’ (Jamie Wardrop and Sita Pieraccini) where partygoers are invited to bring foliage which – under microscope – will transform into cosmic universes right before your eyes.

Join a group of ordinary people who set off on an extraordinary odyssey, walking 500 miles up The Spine of Albion, an ancient leyline running along Britain’s longest north-south axis. After 8 weeks of walking they’ve reached Glasgow ready for the opening weekend of UNCOP26. The Pilgrims have created an uplifting ceremony to celebrate the opening of The Landing Hub and kickstart the conference from the ground up.

About the Landing Hub

The Landing Hub is part of the Sustainable Glasgow Landing.
Sustainable Glasgow Landing and The Landing Hub is a project by New Practice in collaboration with Inhouse delivered for Glasgow City Council, host city for COP26.
The Landing Hub sits at 220 Broomielaw, minutes from the COP26 site, and is the largest free fringe events space over the conference.
The vibrant, welcoming pop-up space is where the arts meets the climate and social justice movements. The Landing Hub will host local and international collaborators for an exciting programme of screenings, workshops, performances, talks and parties. Audiences of all ages will be invited to connect, share and dance in the fully accessible space.
The Landing Hub also doubles as a social hub where everyone is welcome: Glaswegian locals, community groups, young people, grassroots and frontline activists and international delegates. They hope to ignite and build conversations around climate action, and reach a wide and diverse audience.
