Important Information


Events with less than or more than 500 attendees

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, additional Government guidance has been issued in relation to events/mass gatherings. The details can be found on the Scottish Government website.

If you are planning to have an event with less than or more than 500 attendees, we expect that you will adhere to the guidance and that you cancel or postpone your event due to the potential impact on the wider community. It would also be worth highlighting that the situation is a fluid one and guidance will likely change over the coming weeks.

In making your assessment you should also consider those not directly involved in your event such as supporters, observers, emergency services and how this could increase overall numbers and impact negatively on the emergency services.  

We thank you for your patience during this time.


Our events provide opportunities for us to connect with our city, enjoy time together and celebrate the diversity of our culture.

Through our event management and venue hire services, we are committed to maintaining Glasgow's reputation as a global events destination and world-class city.
