Old Fruitmarket

The Old Fruitmarket is a venue with huge character with its lofty vaulted roof, listed cast iron columns, original signage and balcony. Part of the City Halls complex it is an incredibly versatile venue which can host product launches, awards ceremonies and trade fairs as well as theatre events, banquets, concerts, club nights, ceilidhs, fashion shows and weddings.

The Old Fruitmarket building has been extensively refurbished giving this iconic venue a new lease of life. It has since played an important role in hosting many of the city’s key cultural events and celebrations. The atmospheric Old Fruitmarket can host major events and the venue lies right in the heart of the Merchant City – Glasgow’s arts and cultural quarter.

The Victorian architecture creates a visually dramatic setting for any event. Prepare to be caught under the spell of this hugely versatile and atmospheric venue as soon as you walk through its doors. This spacious and entrancing venue has kept all of its period charm after its extensive refurb as part of the City Halls complex development.
