Help us celebrate The Briggait’s 150th birthday. Join us at The Briggait on the evening of Thursday 7 December for refreshments and to see an exhibition of works by artists that call The Briggait their creative home.

Opened in 1873 as Glasgow’s fish market, The Briggait was a bustling centre for trade across the West of Scotland for over a century until the fish market relocated to Blochairn in the 1970s.

For a time the building lay derelict, slated for demolition, before the Bridgegate Preservation Trust (now known as the Glasgow Building Preservation Trust) ensured its survival. In 2009, Wasps Studios, the UK’s largest provider of creative spaces, transformed The Briggait, reopening it as a creative hub for artists and creative industries.

Please join us at The Briggait to celebrate the first 150 years of this iconic venue’s rich history as we embark on the next step in its renovation: launching the Clydeside Market Halls.
