It was a really excellent workshop and our attendees, as well as Chrissie and I, rate the venue, catering and overall service you gave us highly. Here is some fantastic feedback relating to the venue (from 36 of our 38 attendees):

  1. 100% thought the venue was GOOD or EXCELLENT.

The events team have been splendid. Helpful and attentive to detail, they created the event just as we had envisaged, if not better.

Luisa Candido - The Dairy Council

I was delighted to find The Lighthouse to host our Partnership Event and would recommend it to anyone looking for the ideal venue. The event space was perfect, the catering lovely and their friendly staff went out of their way, adding little touches here and there, to make sure our event was perfect. I can’t thank the Lighthouse events team enough.

The level of service that you receive at the Lighthouse is second to none – it is a pleasure to work with all of the staff when planning an event… all is seamless .. and every request carried out perfectly- and with a smile… the food provided by Encore is superb and perfect for our events…. We hope to work with the Lighthouse for many years to come…

Thanks again for helping with a great event – it’s always great having the AV built in and it’s such a good space

Colum Fraser - Glasgow Chamber of Commerce

The service provided by the Lighthouse events and catering staff was truly exceptional. We were blown away with the effort, time and attention to detail in making our day so special. We were particularly impressed with the personable service and have many special thanks to Ruth, Victoria, Melissa, Yvonne and Ronnie. Thank you all so very much!!

The prospect of trying to plan our wedding in Glasgow from London admittedly filled us with dread however it quickly became apparent that we could put our full trust in the events team at the Lighthouse. From our very first encounter we were given warm welcomes and as much time as was needed – a constant feature of the Lighthouse’s very personal and in tune service.

We felt truly confident and comfortable talking through our ideas and, as we worked towards the wedding itself, nothing was ever a bother and no detail left unhashed. The wedding planning process, which had initially seemed intimidating to us, became enjoyable and a real collaboration. We were certain Melissa and the team were as excited as we were, and it was infectious!

Our wedding day was stunning and we have been overwhelmed by compliments on the venue, from the canapes to the mulled wine, the delicious food to the outstanding decor, and most of all, the effortless pace of the day.

It’s with such affection that we would whole heartedly recommend The Lighthouse and would like to take this opportunity to thank Melissa and her team again for their relentless dedication, patience, flair and professionalism. We wish we could press repeat!

A brilliant venue for a wedding! It’s not just an exhibition centre. Many interesting events take place here. It was the original Herald offices and printing press I believe. It holds many exhibitions. Has a fantastic viewing platform. Our daughter got married and had her reception here and it was faultless . Beautiful food , attentive staff. Altogether a great atmosphere . A special thank you to Danielle for all her hard work and tracing and keeping the knife and cake slice for the wedding cake which we left behind. Thanks to everyone !


Faultless. We were in The Viewing Platform on a very warm day but the air conditioning unit and constant supplies of iced water made sure it was never too hot. However, if it had become too warm, they were offering to move us elsewhere in the building. Great service and truly excellent food. Would not hesistate to use again.

Kim Grant - Maryhill Housing Association

Huge thanks for yesterday – so impressed with the space and all the staff – and your invaluable help throughout! The events, tech and catering team couldn’t have been more helpful. We’ve had excellent feedback from yesterday  – the event went like a dream – and many attendees complimented the venue and catering! Please pass on our thanks to all involved.
