Walking the oldest streets of Glasgow, our Merchant City Music – Past and Present tour covers cherished venues such as the mighty Barrowland Ballroom and the venerable Britannia Panopticon – Britain’s oldest surviving music hall.

The Merchant City has proved to be a creative stamping ground for everyone from Stan Laurel to Billy Connolly, Simple Minds and Franz Ferdinand.

This tour tells the story of the veteran venues which have found a new lease of life; the fertile relationship between the city’s visual arts community and its musicians; the legendary pubs frequented by folk music giants, and the newer, noisier upstarts that keep the grassroots scene growing.

This tour finishes at Mono Café Bar where customers can enjoy a 25% discount on food on production of tour ticket.

Join Glasgow Music City Tours as we lift the lid on the sights and sounds of the Merchant City.

Additional Dates: 28 July 2018, 04 August 2018, 11 August 2018, 18 August 2018, 25 August 2018, 01 September 2018, 08 September 2018, 15 September 2018, 22 September 2018, 29 September 2018, 06 October 2018, 13 October 2018, 20 October 2018, 27 October 2018
