Join the artists of Recollective for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour the world-famous Barrowland Ballroom. Stand in the same spot as your favourite acts, hang out in the backstage lounge, and keep an eye out for the alleged ghost.

The tours are part of Barrowland Ballads: Stories from the Ballroom, Recollective’s documentary project that will use fiction, photography and illustration to capture the Ballroom’s legacy. 

Did you dance there as a youngster? Do you remember your first gig? Recollective would like to hear about it over refreshments in the backstage lounge. Each participant will receive a special souvenir of their visit.

Max of 20 people per tour. While we anticipate the tour being entirely safe, with no significant hazards, this is a behind the scenes tour that takes the participant into a number of areas usually closed to the public. We ask that attendees follow instructions carefully and do not stray from the tour. Unfortunately, there is currently no wheelchair access at the Barrowland Ballroom.

Supported by Creative Scotland and Glasgow Heritage Trust.
