PLEASE NOTE Tramway is currently closed in line with Glasgow Life's response to Covid-19. 

We are working towards reopening, at reduced capacity, as soon as we can, and on the basis of the government's recovery routemap.
We will update this website and our social media channels with more information as and when it is confirmed. We thank you for your understanding.

Tramway is an international art-spa​ce which commissions, produces and presents contemporary arts projects including dance, performance and exhibitions. The name relates to the building's original purpose as a tram depot, which makes it a venue unlike any other, featuring unique theatre and gallery spaces. Our main gallery, T2, is one of the largest in the UK, second only to Tate Modern's Turbine Hall in scale.
