07 Feb Is Saint Luke’s on your list of night-time venues to visit in Glasgow?
Located in the east end of Glasgow is an area known as the barras, (pronounced ba-ras by Glaswegians) The word dates to the 19th century when local traders would sell their wares on handcarts, or barrows.
During this time in history, a church in the area called Saint Luke’s was built, however, it was then disbanded in 2012. Thankfully, this historic church was given a new lease of life in 2015 when an ambitious refurbishment started, and with strong support from Glasgow City Heritage Trust and Calton Barras Action Plan, a new state of the art venue designed to host music, arts and other special events was born, and is now well-loved, enjoyed and known as “Saint Luke’s”.
As well as a standalone arts and music venue, it is used to host private bespoke events including weddings, corporate events and can offer something completely different for companies or individuals looking to have their event stand out from the crowd.
The church space on the ground floor can cater for up to 180 guests banquet style or 300 guests’ theatre style.
As arts and music venue, it hosts an eclectic mix of visiting artists including musicians, comedians and theatre shows that includes every kind of genre imaginable from every corner of the globe.
February and March onwards are incredibly busy with any number of artists and acts descending on Saint Luke’s to entertain so many of us who have been starved of live music and entertainment over the last few years.
