“Civic House is a gorgeous space full of wonderful people, with many working in the creative industries, architecture, and placemaking, which crosses over with what we do. I love how people eat together at lunchtime, either in the studio kitchen or downstairs at Parveen’s Canteen (which is absolutely delicious), it makes the space feel very sociable. Where we work is very important to us, we want our clients and collaborators to enjoy visiting us. As we’ve started working with more clients in Glasgow, they’ve loved popping over for coffee and food. We feel at the centre of something here at Civic House, with regular parties and events happening throughout the building. It suits our Rabbithole personality perfectly.”

Mark Martin – Rabbithole Design

“We loved the raw, industrial vibe for Just Start Here, our work-in-progress festival. It provided the perfect context for the audience and the artists who were trying something new – which chimes brilliantly with the ethos of the building –it was brilliant to host discussions about art and activism in a space that is centred around community progression and development. I can’t praise the Agile City team enough either, they were flexible and responsive and artistically engaged with what we wanted to achieve.”

Anna Hodgart – Engine Room Producer, National Theatre of Scotland

“Civic House provided the ideal festival hub for us. The ground floor of the venue served as café-bar, guest accreditation and screening room, which meant we were able to host festival delegates, guests, speakers and members of the public for screenings, discussions, live gigs, receptions, dinners and parties! We used Civic House Kitchen to cater for all our events and the food was excellent! The team went above and beyond to meet our hospitality and technical needs. We’re excited to continue working with Civic House in the future.”

Matt Lloyd – Director, Glasgow Short Film Festival

“As a remote worker I was looking to get out of my flat but the offices for my employer aren’t in Glasgow. Rather than spend the money on travel I thought I’d rather spend the money on a desk space locally. I value the social interaction and connections to other people working in related fields and Civic House is such a warm, cosy and bright space to be.”

Alex Wilde, Shaping Places for Wellbeing

“As an open-source, eclectic festival we really look for our hub to support and present a great variety of our programme and we found the ideal space in Civic House. From clean, large open plan galley-style spaces to smaller, more unconventional rooms for smaller presentations We loved the additional opportunity to work outdoors via the exterior sites in front of the building – they gave us a great opportunity to really promote the festival. The team were also a joy to work with – well organised and responsive with an excellent range of skills and experience. We felt very well looked-after, comfortable and well-supported.”

Andy Summers – Director, Architecture Fringe

“Civic House as a venue is spacious, adaptable, the interior has superb natural lighting and atmosphere. We have used the event space on several occasions, the team are really professional and accommodating, with assistance on hand for any technical questions or accessibility needs. There is a real sense of the venue being for and about the community. Being situated right next to the canal is of course ideal for us and a great meeting place for us to showcase the canal networks to any guests.”

Lisa Ross – Scottish Canals
