halls for hire - the halls for your event

The Halls can be used to host a number of events, and have in the past accommodated everything from a book launch to conferences and weddings. Because of the sizes of our rooms, Maryhill Burgh Halls works as a great space for both parties, as well as corporate gatherings. Read more here, or scroll down to view the spaces we offer. You can book a space through our booking form.

Music, Arts & Film - Regular rehearsals venue for orchestras and bands, whilst we have also hosted art festivals, film screenings, and been used as a filming location. The Halls hold a theatre license.

Family Events - We’ve hosted full weddings, wedding receptions, anniversary dinners, kids and adult birthday parties, and funerals, the majority of which are for local people. The Halls are experienced in hosting weddings, and we have collated some information on celebrating your special day here.

Community & Public Consultation Events - We’re used frequently by other local organisations wanting a venue to hold public consultations and open meetings.

Classes & Training - The Halls are used regularly by dance companies, yoga workshops, and for mindfulness classes.

Conferences & Meetings - We’re used heavily by local housing associations, and even hosted the annual conference of a Scotland-wide political party.

"Thank you to the Halls Manager for your support with the organisation and to the security staff which made my wifes 40th a night we will remember forever. Thanks for your warmth and help with the last minute details. Patience of a saint comes to mind as does expert problem solvers! Our heartfelt gratitude, the Hill Family"

"Everyone commented on how professional the setup was, and how well the space worked – thank you for putting up with us and for our total lack of ability to finish on time, or have a van turn up without breaking down somewhere between London and Glasgow!  We also managed to eat all the food in the café by Friday morning, but at least we supported a social enterprise in doing so."

"The guys on duty where brilliant  - attentive, polite (saved the day with the correct MacBook connection too!!!)"

"Many thanks to everyone at Maryhill Burgh Halls for all the help and support during studio filming of Remotely Funny in August 2017.  The Recording Studio worked perfectly for our shoot, and everyone on site went out of their way from our first recce through to kit collection to make sure things went as smoothly as they could for us.  I would recommend the Halls to anyone looking for a flexible, adaptable small studio space in Glasgow.  Thanks again!"

"I wouldn’t spread the word, because I didn’t want the hall to get used too much and be spoiled!!! I just love the space as I know what it was like before the refurb…… and going to the old baths next door when I was little!"
