Ticket sales information is available at the foot of this page.

 

GLW tickets are SOLD OUT,
We are currently working to see if we can obtain some more places for the Leather Dinner.
Places for brunch were limited and cannot be increased.
There are still tickets available for the Whisky Tasting.

 

NOTE: Bookings are not complete until payment has been made and we expect tickets to sell out quickly.

 

In the event that tickets sell out we can add your name to a waiting list, if you contact us to request this.

 

 

General information:

 

There is no dress code, however leather is encouraged, and in particular for the Leathermen Scotland dinner.

 

We do not wish to exclude people from our events because of a lack of gear, or because you don’t have gear right now.

 

Dress appropriately for public venues in Glasgow in December.

 

There are a small number of events for which prepaid tickets are required, this is because we need to know the exact numbers attending and we need payment in advance so that we can pay our suppliers. Some other suggested activities may require payment and these are listed in the event descriptions.

 

Accessibility information is provided in good faith and is believed to be accurate.

 

 

Visiting on your own:

 

We try very hard to make sure that people are not left alone unless they do actually want to be, it’s not always easy; if you find yourself alone and need a little help then please look out for one of our volunteers who will be wearing a lanyard with the word “Host”, let them know, they are approachable and they do genuinely want to help.

 

Do note however, that taking part in events and getting to know people requires effort from everyone. Naturally some people will already know others and will want to talk and spend time with them, they may have travelled a very long way in order to attend.

 

Going to an event like the Leathermen Scotland Dinner and the whisky Tasting can be good for getting to know other people because you will be seated with others.
