Trades Hall of Glasgow

Situated in the Merchant City in the heart of Glasgow, the Trades Hall is one of the most important historic buildings in Glasgow.

Designed and built from 1791-1794 by Robert Adam, one of Scotland’s most famous architects, the Trades Hall was built to serve as a public hall and meeting place for the city’s Trades House & 14 Incorporated Crafts.

Today, whether you are planning an exhibition, conference, dinner or meeting the Trades Hall offers a unique and prestigious setting with impressive facilities.

The Grand Hall is an opulent setting for your conference dinner, dance or Scottish Ceilidh and can accommodate up to 230 delegates (seated). The Hall is decorated with a fascinating gilt-painted frieze depicting the Trades of Glasgow and is illuminated by golden chandeliers.

The Saloon, which adjoins the Grand Hall, can hold up to 100 people for receptions or 60 for dinners, making it ideal for your pre-dinner drinks reception or as a breakout room. The Saloon features mahogany-panelled walls inscribed with gilt lettering, stained glass windows, baroque electroliers and a white marble Adam fireplace, ideal as a background for memorable photography.

The North and South Galleries, located on the top floor of the Trades Hall, are two new additions to the suite of space available to hire at the venue. These freshly refurbished conference rooms, in a stripped Adam style, are ideal for presentations, press releases, company meetings and training sessions.

Free wifi is available at this venue.
