We got a great turn out for our first Merchant City Festival tour on Sunday.
It was a pretty varied group in terms of musical interests but with content ranging from music hall acts to Glasgow’s post-punk scene via the classical conductor with the world’s longest name, we had stories for everyone.
UK’s oldest music hall
It was good to give people a look around the Fruitmarket and, as ever, our visit to the Britannia Panopticon, Britain’s oldest surviving music hall seemed to enchant everyone.
Our tour ended at Mono with a great set from Miracle Strip and a raffle in aid of Nordoff-Robbins.
Our next Merchant City Festival tour is on Thursday. We’ll be setting off from the City Halls Box Office at Candleriggs at 2pm.
Tickets are £5 from here.
As on Sunday, we’ll be rounding off the tour with a gig at Mono, probably starting at around 4.30pm.
Thursday’s up and coming band are Spinning Coin and we’ve got a blog from them lined up for tomorrow.
Come along for the tour, come along for the band at Mono. Hope to see you Thursday.
