Sauchiehall Street: Culture and Heritage District

Signage which says Sauchiehall Street: Culture and Heritage District

Sauchiehall Street is one of 20 places in the UK which will receive a share of £200 million over the next ten years. The funding is through the National Lottery Heritage Fund Heritage Places initiative. You can find out more information about the initiative here.

Glasgow Life is working with Glasgow City Council, the National Lottery Heritage Fund as well as the local, cultural, and business communities on a long-term project. Everyone’s ideas and ambitions are being heard, which will help develop the street as a culture and heritage district.

There are workshops taking place to develop a collective vision and ambition. Over 40 culture and heritage organisations attended a workshop in December 2023 at the Centre for Contemporary Arts.

They were asked to map their visions, contacts, and ambitions for the project. The aim is to build a collective vision which is greater than the sum of its parts for Sauchiehall Street as a culture and heritage district.
