THE CCA is having “a party for everyone”, including the local community, residents of the surrounding Garnethill area and all regular visitors and supporters of the multi-arts centre.

Closed for months following June’s second fire at the nearby Glasgow School of Art, the CCA and the Saramago Cafe Bar celebrate the re-opening on Friday December 7.

The celebrations begin at 7pm with the opening of the CCA’s new exhibition on the life and work of Czech screenwriter Ester Krumbachova, and the Scottish Queer International Film Festival will have events on throughout the evening such as Dykes, Camera, Action! (7pm) and an asexual reading of The Wizard Of Oz (8.45pm).

The music will crank into gear around 9pm with DJ sets from Cucina Povera, Poisonous Relationship, Sarra Wild, pictured, and a live set from electronic trio Kubler-Ross continuing the festivities till 3am.

“This is a party for everyone,” says CCA director Francis Mckee. “We want to celebrate the reopening of our building and bring together all the people who supported us during the summer months and all those who want to support the revival of Sauchiehall Street and the Garnethill area.

“It’s time to look forward and definitely time for a party.”

December 7, CCA, Glasgow, 7pm, free entry all night.
