Venue Hire

16 Nicholson Street gallery occupies a historic three-story tenement building located in the iconic Laurieston area of Southside Glasgow.

Sitting on the Southbank of the River Clyde, this accessible space is a 5 minute walk from City Centre transport links, the Bridge Street Underground Station, and the vibrant Merchant City area, making it a great place to bring people together from across Glasgow, Edinburgh and wider Scotland. Since 2016, we have been supporting emerging artists in Glasgow and welcoming exciting, innovative, and socially-engaged programming in the space.

The unique, three-floor tenement layout opens ample opportunities to transform the space to your needs, and we invite you to create an experience for your next event, workshop, photoshoot, performance rehearsal, community group, creative class/club, meeting, small conference… or any of the many possibilities for using this space! 

We are also excited to launch our new Exhibition Venue Hire Packages that offer our curatorial supervision, install assistance, and exhibition production support to make your exhibition concept into a successful reality.
