Beginning its life as Glasgow's wholesale fruit market, the venue was thoughtfully and imaginatively renovated to create a very special venue.  With a number of its period features retained, including the lofty vaulted roof, cast iron columns and balcony, the Old Fruitmarket offers a unique setting for a wide range of events from folk, pop, jazz and world music concerts, comedy and club nights to weddings, fashion shows and banquets.
