I have been a regular user of the Tramway over the years. From my kids attending Drama and Woodwind classes to seeing performances of various plays/musicals. I come to the café for a snack and a walk round the Hidden Gardens, a beautiful peaceful haven in the centre of the city. I brought a friend recently for lunch but was... More

We were here for Scottish Ballet Associates auditions and loved the place. The studios have a wonderful feel as soon as you walk in. The cafe has a limited menu but what is available is good. The spiced sweet potato soup was delicious. The gardens are beautiful and there is outside seating too. Parking was difficult though.

Was on my travels on the outskirts of the great city when this brilliantly located place (right beside the train station) offered the chance for a well needed beverage and, indeed a cheeky cake. Nothing could prepare me for what I would encounter inside this very nice building... WIT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. The time I spent there from beginning to... More

This is lovely theatre. It is well laid out. Reception staff were lovely and very helpful as were the staff within the Theatre. However, I cannot say the same about the staff working the cafe. The attitude and body language of at least 2 (especially the girl on the til when we went to see 5 Soldiers) was shocking. Coffee... More

Ten years ago when our kids were toddlers the Tramway used to be one of our favourite haunts for a coffee and catch up with friends. We re-visited it this weekend and were disappointed to see the place hadn't changed in all those years and indeed had just become a little bit dingy. We sat inside in the dark lifeless... More

Passing through Glasgow, on my way North, little time to spare, it dawned that I was missing the Glasgow International Festival again! Quick detour to Tramway, a converted Tram depot, now a centre for visual and performing arts. It was well worth the effort. Tramway is a fascinating space for visual arts. Rooted in the industrial past of Glasgow, this... More

We visited to see some exhibits, installations and films in the Glasgow International Festival. We were fortunate to be able to join a guided tour which was very much worthwhile. Overall I thought the works were engaging and powerful. The space itself is stunning - the main hall is 2nd only in size to the turbine hall in Tate Modern,... More

Exciting to be in this great space for the Glasgow International Festival. Liked the emphasis on female artists (though this wasn't hammered home), particularly Amie Siegel's powerful and elegant film, Provenance, expressing with barely a word the hypocrisy of the current art market. Wandering from space to space in Tramway is very appealing but the cafe is a let-down. Initially... More

In April and May 2016 Tramway is hosting a number of artists exhibiting in the Glasgow International, an arts festival that deserves to be more widely known. As the name suggests, the venue is a large former tram shed that has plenty of space for a range of different events. We were particularly interested in the video installations and particularly...

The only exhibition at The Tramway was the quite small, but interesting and amusing one by Richard Slee. The main exhibition area was closed as the Turner Prize exhibits were being dismantled. There was free food, mostly Asian and from the Middle East, in the Hidden Garden at the back of the building. A very enjoyable visit - I really... More
