About this venue

Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum is situated in mature and breathtakingly refreshing parkland near the lively and entertaining West End of Glasgow.

The University of Glasgow proudly overlooks this splendid example of late Victorian architecture.  The imposing sandstone building is one of the city's most prominent landmarks and Glasgow's most magnificent venue for prestigious gala dinners, drinks receptions or presentations.

Kelvingrove houses one of the finest civic art collections in Britain and this can be viewed by you and your guests during an evening event.  The collection is one that the people of Glasgow hold dear to their hearts and willingly share with all other folk who visit.  Luxuriate in this grand atmosphere and rub shoulders with greats such as Botticelli, Rembrandt and van Gogh. Get to know the 'Glasgow Boys', including Guthrie, Lavery and Hornel.

The Centre Hall within Kelvingrove offers a spectacular setting for regal receptions, banquets, gala dinners, formal presentations and display buffets.  It allows for large numbers of guests, all of whom will feel distinguished and honoured.  Seated beneath the exquisite vaulted ceiling and in view of the Lewis Organ, guests will enjoy the best combination of culture and cuisine.

Since the building's 3 year and £30 million refurbishment the museum offers a wealth of new exhibits to delight and enthral guests of all ages.
