Glasgow and Venues

The City of Glasgow

Glasgow is a city where grit and glamour collide – where beautiful architecture and green spaces sit alongside relics of an industrial past. The cultural heart of Scotland, Glasgow is a cosmopolitan, vibrant city, widely recognised as a major influence on European art, design and architecture. Rich with national and major museums, galleries and venues to explore, host of the 2014 Commonwealth Games and a UNESCO City of Music, Glasgow’s cultural landscape is a joy to explore.

The ‘Glasgow Miracle’

The term ‘Glasgow Miracle’ was coined by lecturer Hans-Ulbrich Orbist to describe the emergence of Glasgow’s famously vibrant art scene, linked to graduates of The Glasgow School of Art working in the city, establishing studio spaces and artist-led galleries such as Transmission and Wasps, and providing a network for others to do the same. As a result, Glasgow offers a multi-tiered system of artist-run spaces and more established galleries providing artists with opportunities to exhibit at every stage of their development.

Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

As a delegate you won't fail to be caught up in the magic of one of Scotland's premier music venues, the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, as it proudly looks down Buchanan Street over the city. Built for Glasgow's reign as European Capital of Culture, this epic multi-purpose venue has a busy year-round programme of music and events and is the main venue for Celtic Connections, the world's largest winter music festival and is the home of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
