Barrowland Ballroom Profile Pic


The original Barrowland Ballroom opened in 1934 in a mercantile area east of Glasgow’s city centre and was built by “Barras Queen” Maggie McIver.

The Barrowland building includes large street-level halls used for the weekend markets, with a sizeable weatherproof hall above. The front of the building is decorated with a distinctive animated neon sign. The sign is believed to be the biggest of its kind in the UK

The building was largely destroyed by fire in 1958, leading to a complete rebuild. The rebuilt ballroom opened on Christmas Eve 1960.

In more recent years, the Ballroom has become a major concert venue with a capacity of around 1950 people, known for its acoustics and its sprung dance floor.

While it is a legendary rock music venue, the Barrowland has held shows in every music genre from Rap to classical and is often used to stage specialist events like record & comic fairs, tea dances and corporate events.
