Walking the oldest streets of Glasgow, your two-hour tour will be led by enthusiastic music performers, fans and writers.
Hear all the tall tales from the city’s past and present venues, the artists who played in them and the audiences that continue to fill them with life.
Discover cherished venues such as the mighty Barrowland Ballroom and the venerable Britannia Panopticon – Britain’s oldest surviving music hall and the scene for the stage debut of comedy legend Stan Laurel.
Get off the tourist path and dive deep into the colourful characters, quirky stories and unique venues that make Glasgow a UNESCO City of Music.
The Merchant City has proved to be a creative stamping ground for everyone from Woody Guthrie to Billy Connolly, Simple Minds and Franz Ferdinand.
Come with us as we explore the stories 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.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Merchant City Music Past and Present are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
Whether you're wishing to purchase a few hidden treasures, interested in selling or just wishing for an enjoyable day out, there is something for everyone at Ayr's Sunday Market and Car Boot Sale!
