Dates and times

Saturday 23 March 2019
3:00PM - 4:00PM
From the man behind the popular language-based Twitter account @HaggardHawks, Around the World in 80 Words is a whimsical voyage through the far-flung reaches of the English language. 

Beginning in London and heading through Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Americas, discover why the origins of turkeys, Brazil nuts, limericks and Panama hats aren’t quite as straightforward as you might presume. 

Find out what the Philippines have given to your office in-tray; what an island with more bears than people has given to your liquor cabinet; and how a tiny hamlet in Nottinghamshire became Gotham City.

Venue

North Street, Glasgow, G3 7DN

Open today 9:00am - 5:00pm
