Candleriggs, G1 1NQ
Grand Hall opened in 1841, George Murray, Market complex designed in 1885, John Carrick
A pair of gems in the Merchant City - City Halls, Glasgow's oldest purpose-built performance space has been entertaining visitors since 1841. The adjoining Old Fruitmarket has been reborn as a music venue while still retaining its traditional market ambience.
No matter what type of concert you prefer, from orchestral to the more intimate recital, the sound in our Grand Hall is breath-taking. The traditional shoe box auditorium is renowned throughout the world for having some of the finest acoustics and our elegant and spectacular Hall is also home to the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Scottish Music Centre. The exciting music complex houses top class rehearsal, recording, broadcasting and webcasting facilities.
The Old Fruitmarket was a functioning market until the 1970s and an original sign from one of the fruit sellers can still be seen. It is now a hugely versatile building that plays host to theatre events, jazz concerts, comedy, rock, pop and world music gigs, as well as club nights, ceilidhs, fashion shows and banquets. A true jewel in the city that is definitely worth a visit.
