We offer 20,000 sq.ft of flexible event, film, photography, TV, fabrication, and production space spread over 2 floors, only 10 minutes from the city centre. There are few buildings in the city centre that have the same scale and variety – from traditional warehouse space, white walled galleries and a double height room with original glue vats and industrial pipe work. This unique mix of space makes The Glue Factory an ideal host for productions large or small.

"It has a unique and distinctive character unmatched elsewhere in the city, presenting an array of light and dark spaces, and juxtaposing the ‘clean’ spaces of a conventional gallery with ‘raw’ industrial spaces that encourage artists to exercise their inventiveness and ingenuity. It is a venue that always springs new surprises, and one that sometimes seems to have a personality of its own. It is the Proteus of the venue world.”

John Calcutt - Head of MFA, Glasgow School of Art
“No other venue in Glasgow has the same variety of performing spaces; it is such a versatile and open place which allows for unique cross-art form programming. We are very much looking forward to working in partnership again in the future.”

Cathie Boyd, ARTISTIC director, CRYPTIC
"With a range of lighting situations, textures, and spaces both clean & bright, with industrial character, The Glue Factory provides a vast canvas to work with. The variety available not only inspires, but also practically allows a one-day shoot to capture a broad range of styles and moods. Well managed and with great flexibility it's one of our favourite locations to shoot and we recommend it as a shooting space to clients time and time again."

Gillian Lawtie, The Curries Photography
