DESIGNS Drawn Up For Bigger Gig Venue Next To Celtic Park

15 April, 2023 | Arts, Leisure, Entertainment and Sport

NEW proposals for a purpose-built music and events venue beside Celtic Park have been submitted for planning approval.

New designs drawn up for G40 Events Ltd show a building with capacity for 940 people that would be built on vacant land next to 1257 London Road, including part of Dalriada Street.

Glasgow City Council already gave planning permission in March 2020 for a venue with space for 700 people at the site.

A document included with the new application states: “The proposed venue would be hosting a multitude of different events ranging from live music, corporate dinners, weddings, fashion shows, food and drink events.

“The proposals aim to provide a modestly sized venue of 940-person capacity that is to host primarily commercial music events but with the dual purpose of becoming a recreational space for the immediate Parkhead community.

“The proposal will be supported by high quality bar and necessary ancillary facilities to host large gatherings along with complementary external amenity ‘yard’ space with temporary external street food or music events.”

It continues: “The site has an existing consent for a live music venue. The landowner is seeking to develop these proposals and create a more modern and distinctive identity for the venue.

“The proposal will create a simple and elegant building form that makes a positive contribution to London Road and the wider context.”
