The Arches is not only Glasgow’s biggest club venue, it is also a world-leading arts venue, presenting and producing world-renowned contemporary performance and nurturing young artists in their early careers.”

The Arches Glasgow

The Arches was a bar, arts venue, theatre, live music venue and nightclub in Glasgow which first opened in 1991.

The Arches Glasgow

It was a not-for-profit organisation. It is situated in the City Centre under Glasgow Central station and the West Coast Main Line in the brick arches of the viaduct that leads into the station, with entrances on Midland Street, and since 2001, an entrance underneath Hielanman’s Umbrella on Argyle Street.

The venue has 7,800 sqm (84,000 sqft) of floor space over two floors and seven arches. In June 2015 the company announced it would go into administration and would have no choice but to close down the facility. source: wikipedia

The Arches Goes into Administration

Gordon Kennedy, Chairman of The Arches Board of Directors said:
“The Arches has its roots in the 1990 City of Culture and has since been recognised as one of the UK and Europe’s leading music venues, an internationally renowned arts and creative learning hub…it is one of Glasgow’s iconic venues.

Lucy Mason, Artistic Director for The Arches said:
“The atmosphere and architecture of The Arches have helped to shape and define a generation of enquiring and vital artists. It’s shocking that this building which has inspired such creativity, devotion and ambition, should cease to exist as an Arts venue.
