Tucked away on Glasgow’s Southside, the Tramway venue is renowned as both an avant-garde art gallery and performing arts theatre. The building started out life as a tram depot in the late Victorian era. With the end of the trams in the 1960′s the building was then used as the museum of transport until 1988 when the Tramway Theatre opened its doors to the public.
There are so many interesting exhibitions to discover here, with the venue showcasing the works of new Scottish artists and commission works. The Tramway was revamped in 2001 and now it is one of the largest individual exhibition space in Europe.
The venue also fits in a community cafe serving up fresh sandwiches and coffee, and if you head through the cafe you will find the Hidden Gardens. A peaceful and tranquil outside space, designed by artists. It’s a great place for kids as well as being an inspirational horticultural art space.
Recently the Scottish Ballet moved into the derelict building next to the Tramway and with an exciting new programme of performances on the agenda, it is worth checking out the Tramway as there is always something going on.
