Corpies, Clippies and Light

About Corpies, Clippies and Light

Follow the light on a journey of a thousand lifetimes as heritage and art mesh to create a unique experience.

Corpies, Clippies & Light, a joint production by Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust and The Glasgow School of Art, pierces the dark of winter, warping visitors into a new environment composed of classic buses, video, sound and light reflecting Scotland's transport history.

For one night only (Saturday, December 9), GVVT's vast and atmospheric Bridgeton Bus Garage becomes a living 3D theatre, and its colourful collection of vehicles the principal players.

Through video projection mapping, creative lighting effects, audio and sculpture, the students of GSoA interpret the tales behind the metal. Guided by image and light, walk among buses that linked Scotland's communities, experience the days when they transported miners to the pithead, shuttled workers to the city, carried kids to school and ferried families to holiday destinations. See them, touch them, hear them.

This is a groundbreaking event, appealing equally to families, art lovers, historians and transport enthusiasts. It is open to visitors from 4pm to 8pm, and admission is by ticket only. Tickets can be purchased through our eventbrite site (see link).

Refreshments are available throughout from the celebrated Clippie's Cafe.

GVVT will operate a courtesy shuttle bus service linking Glasgow city centre with Bridgeton (see website for details).

There is also ample on-street parking at the Garage.
